The Los Angeles Sharks were a team that played in the World Hockey Association from 1972 to 1974 They alternated home arenas between the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and the Long Beach Sports Arena. After the 1973–74 season, the franchise moved to Detroit to become the Michigan Stags and again mid-season to Baltimore to become the Baltimore Blades.

The franchise was originally referred to as the "Los Angeles Aces", but took the "Sharks" name after the proposed San Francisco Sharks franchise (not to be confused with the current NHL San Jose Sharks) was transferred to Quebec and became the Nordiques before the WHA began play.
