The Baltimore Blades were created out of the remains of the Stags (retaining coach Johnny Wilson, although he was unenthusiastic about the shift) and were operated by the league; the move caused the American Hockey League's Baltimore Clippers, already in financial trouble, to promptly close up shop. After playing seven straight road games (all losses), the Blades debuted at the Baltimore Civic Center on February 2 in front of 9,023 fans. Attendance went flat soon thereafter, however, as the Blades averaged only 3,568 for 17 home dates. At season's end, the league contemplated moving the franchise to Seattle , but instead the club was terminated. Players from the Michigan/Baltimore team, along with those of the defunct Chicago Cougars, were put into a dispersal draft to be claimed by other WHA teams. The team's final record was 21-53-4, the second-worst in the WHA and far out of a playoff spot.
