A Brief History of the Quebec Nordiques

The franchise began NHL play in 1979 and spent 16 seasons in Quebec City

by Callie Parmele @CallieParmele / ColoradoAvalanche.com

Before the Colorado Avalanche arrived in the Mile High City, the team was the Nordiques and was home north of the border in Quebec City, Quebec.

The Quebec Nordiques began play in 1972 as part of the World Hockey Association before joining the NHL as part of a four-team expansion in 1979. During the team's seven years competing in the WHA, it won two division titles and the Avco World Trophy in 1977 as league champions.

Quebec, along with the Edmonton Oilers, Hartford Whalers and Winnipeg Jets, joined the NHL in 1979 after a merger agreement was reached between the WHA and the NHL. The Nordiques, which translates to Northerner or Northmen in English, played their first game in the National Hockey League on Oct. 10, 1979 against the Atlanta Flames.
