Jersey Knights Hockey

After debuting with the rest of the World Hockey Association (WHA) in 1972, the financially struggling New York Raiders became the New York Golden Blades in 1973 under new ownership. That lasted just 20 games before the league took over the team and moved them to suburban Philadelphia where they became the Jersey Knights, playing their home games in Cherry Hill Arena across the Delaware River in New Jersey. In 1974, they moved to Southern California and became the San Diego Mariners.
