FILE - In this Oct. 26, 1967, file photo, California Seals goalie Charlie Hodge, left, knocks the puck away as Detroit Red Wings' star Gordie Howe tries a shot on goal as the Seals' Bob Baun comes in at right during the second period of an NHL hockey game in Detroit. Fifty years ago this week, the owners of the so-called Original Six unanimously approved doubling in size by awarding franchises to Los Angeles, San Francisco/Oakland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Minneapolis/St. Paul. No other pro sports league had ever doubled its amount of teams, but the gamble proved to be one of the most important decisions in hockey history. (AP Photo/Preston Stroup, File)
