The name “Nordiques” came into existence because the team was one of the northernmost in North American professional sports. Quebec City is located at 46 degrees north latitude; the only WHA teams located further north were the Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Cowboys, Vancouver Blazers and Winnipeg Jets. The Quebec Nordiques formed as one of the original World Hockey Association teams in 1972. The franchise was originally awarded to a group in San Francisco as the San Francisco Sharks but the franchise collapsed and was quickly sold. The snapback predominantly uses Carolina Blue with Grey bill and matching eyelets. The crown houses the unique Nordiques logo. Purchase this snapback at
