The California Golden Seals Story
The California Golden Seals were one of the greatest hopes....and biggest disappointments of the NHL's 1967 Great Expansion from six hockey teams to twelve. During their nine-year existence the Seals made nearly every mistake possible. Their story includes white ice skates, orange pucks, future superstars that slipped through their fingers, a tragic on-ice death, an out-of-control owner, a female streaker, Tom Hanks, Wayne Gretzky, a cheerleader named Krazy George, and even the Hell's Angels. Yet despite enduring a nearly constant state of the turmoil, the Seals players would sometimes shock opposing teams….and themselves to deliver a lasting legacy to the game of hockey.
