Hello and welcome to The NHL In Kansas City.

I hope to use this space to disseminate information and opinions about the potential for Kansas City to gain an NHL franchise, as well as to look back at the brief history of the Kansas City Scouts. (Someone ran a similar blog called Hockey in Kansas City for most of 2006, while KC was (supposedly) in the running to become the new home of the Penguins, but that space seems to have been abandoned.)

Among my plans:
  • Reporting any mentions of the NHL coming to KC I can find in the media, and offering my take
  • Historical research on the Scouts and why they didn't last in KC
  • A look back at the first NHL game played in the Sprint Center (a preseason tilt between the Kings and Blues on September 22, 2008)
  • Some lighthearted fun such as conjecture and suggestions about possible team names/colors/uniforms
For now, I'll leave you with this YouTube gem that features game action between the North Stars and Scouts from the 1975-76 season. (Skip ahead to 4:10 of the video to see the Scouts.)
