Whaler Nation -- the Official Home of Hartford Whalers Hockey
The Hartford Whalers were an NHL franchise from 1979 through 1997. Prior to that they were known as the New England Whalers and played major league hockey in the World Hockey Association.
The Whalers enjoyed strong fan support then -- and now. With hockey legends Ron Francis, Gordie Howe and Kevin Dineen, the unforgettable "Brass Bonanza" and hockey's coolest logo, the Whalers made a huge impact on the NHL.
It's been over 20 years since the Whalers left Hartford.
Is it just a matter of time before they return?
