The 1974–75 California Golden Seals season was the Seals' 8th season in the NHL. The team continued to be operated by the league until early 1975, when new local ownership led by Mel Swig, owner of the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, was found. The Seals adopted new uniforms this season with new turquoise and gold colours. They recorded a 15 point improvement over the previous season. In early 1975, rumors began to circulate that the Seals would be relocated to Denver, Colorado.
