Detroit Cougars - 1926
The Cougars were purchased by a group of 26 investors led by Charles Hughes who moved them to Detroit. However, an arena was not ready for the Cougars and they played their first season in the nearby town of Windsor, Ontario. On November 18th the Detroit Cougars played their first game losing to the Bruins at Windsor's Border Cities Arena. That first year playing without a true home the Cougars would struggle finishing last in the American Division with a 12-28-4 record.
