The 1967–68 Oakland Seals season was their first season in the NHL. It began auspiciously, with the firing General Manager Rudy Pilous before the expansion draft.[1] The Seals started their inaugural season with Hall of Famer Bert Olmstead as both coach and general manager, assisted by Gordie Fashoway.[1] The team began the season as the California Seals, but the name was changed to Oakland Seals only a month into the season.

Regular seasonEdit

[2] On January 13, 1968, 4 minutes into a game against the Minnesota North Stars at the Met Center, Bill Masterton was checked by Larry Cahan and Ron Harris, and fell backwards onto the ice. The force of the back of his head hitting the ice caused significant internal bleeding. Masterton lost consciousness and never regained it: he died two days later.
