Best Answer

According to, there was no NHL hockey team based in Minnesota before the North Stars were established as part of the first expansion of the league in 1967. There was a team called the Minnesota Fighting Saints (played in the WHA) that existed from 1973-77. Other than the Wild or North Stars, the Fighting Saints are the only other team to play in Minnesota and be a member of either the NHL or WHA (later merged with the NHL).
