1979: The National Hockey League votes to accept four World Hockey Association teams, the Edmonton Oilers, Winnipeg Jets, Quebec Nordiques and New England Whalers, as new NHL teams for the 1979-1980 season. The merger agreement ended the seven-year existence of the WHA and re-established the NHL as the lone major league in North American professional ice hockey.
