Fans can trace the history of the Carolina Hurricanes back to the World Hockey Association in Hartford, Connecticut. The Carolina Hurricanes was founded in 1971 by Howard Baldwin, Godfrey Wood, William Barned and John Coburn as the New England representatives in the World Hockey Association. The team’s name was influenced by the World Hockey Association (WHA). The Carolina Hurricanes played their first game in 1972 in Boston. The team made a memorable impression in their first season by winning the World Hockey Association’s Avco World Trophy. In 1977 the Hurricanes drafted three Howes; Gordie along with his sons Mark and Marty. The team joined the National Hockey League in 1979 and officially changed its name to the Hartford Whalers.
The Hartford Whalers’ first season was Gordie Howe’s 32nd in the National Hockey League in which he set a record of scoring his 800th regular season goal. Despite a disappointing performance, the Hartford Whalers finished fourth in the Norris Division and made it to the playoffs. They came across and lost to the Montreal Canadians in the first round of the Stanley Cup. Howe retired that season and his number “9” was retired in the subsequent season. In that year’s National Hockey League amateur draft the Whalers drafted the eighteen year old Ron Francis fourth overall. Francies performed remarkably in his rookie season despite the fact that the Whalers did not make the payoffs in the next season.
Peter Karmanos of Compuware, Thomas Thewes and Jim Rutherford acquired the team for $47.5 million in 1994. Rutherford took over as general manager of the franchise and Paul Holmgren was hired as coach. The changes streak continued resulting in the inclusion of Chris Pronger, Brendan Shanahan, Keith Primeau, and Paul Coffey in the team. After the 1996-97 season out of the playoffs and the owner Karmanos and his partners decided to move the team to Carolina. After missing playoffs in the 2000-01 season, the team lost to the New Jersey Devils in the first round disappointing their fans once again. Under the leadership of Ron Francis, Jeff O'Neil and the goaltending of Arturs Irbe the Carolina Hurricanes made their longest post-season run in 2002. In the first round, they beat both the New Jersey Devils and Montreal Canadians in a six game series. Their excellent play allowed them to take over and defeat the Toronto Maple Leads in yet another six game series. This was a glorious moment for the Carolina Hurricanes since it was the first time they had made it to the final berth of the Stanley Cup championship. They faced the strong and quick Detroit Red Wings in the finals and won the first game in a huge upset that left the critics speechless. However, the Detroit Red Wings did not prove to be an easy opponent since they made a surprising comeback by defeating the Carolina Hurricanes in the next four games claiming both the series and the Stanley Cup championship. The team disappointed their fans once again when they finished last in the 2002-03 National Hockey League regular season standings.
