1967 NHL Expansion Draft

The 1967 NHL Expansion Draft was put into place to allow the six new NHL teams to stock their rosters with competetive talent. Each of the Original Six NHL teams was allowed to protect 11 skaters and one goalie from their reserve lists.

Each of the six expansion teams was then allowed to select a player from the Original Six reserve lists. When an Original Six team lost a player, they were allowed to move another player onto their protected list. This pattern continued until each expansion team had selected 20 players in total.

The 1967 Expansion Draft took place in Montreal, from June 5 to June 7.
