Franchise history

Kansas City was awarded an NHL franchise on June 8, 1972. The first choice for a nickname was MO-Hawks, an attempt to appeal to both Kansas and Missouri residents (the Kansas City metropolitan area spills across both states) and incorporating Missouri's postal abbreviation, but the name was vetoed by the Chicago Blackhawks. The second choice, the Scouts, was then chosen. June 8 is the 159th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (160th in leap years), with 206 days remaining. ...

Along with the Washington Capitals, the Scouts joined the NHL as an expansion team for the 1974-75 season. With a combined 30 teams between the NHL and the rival World Hockey Association, the talent pool available to stock the new teams was extremely thin. In their first season, the Capitals would set an NHL record for futility, losing 67 of 80 games, and only winning one on the road. The Scouts fared only marginally better, and the expansion was widely seen as having been a mistake.

They played their home games at Kemper Arena. The team was not a particular success either at the gate or on the ice. Rising oil prices and a falling commodity market made for hard going in the Midwest during the 1970s. Scout Steve Durbano led the league in penalty minutes during the 1975-76 season. For a time in late 1975, the team looked like it could actually make the playoffs -- after a 3-1 win over California on December 28 they stood just one point behind St. Louis in the weak Smythe Division -- but hopes were dashed when the Scouts could win only one of their remaining 44 games (1-35-8). Efforts by management to save the franchise by selling 8,000 season tickets failed, and the club only sold 2,000.
