Although Original Six is a term for the group of six teams that comprised the National Hockey League (NHL) for the 25 seasons between the 194243 season and the 1967 NHL Expansion, the name is something of a misnomer, since there were other NHL franchises that ceased operations before 1942, including some that were founded before some of the Original Six.
The term dates from the 1967 expansion which added six new franchises; hence the six expansion teams and the Original Six.
Only two of the six teams were members of the NHL in the inaugural 191718 season, but all six do date from the NHL's first decade, and predate the other 24 teams currently in the league by over forty years.

Lizzy Borden took an axe and gave her MOTHER forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her FATHER 41.
