When did the goal horn come into hockey? Which team was the first to use one for a goal scored also what team was the last? Also when did using a pre made song (not a public domain organ diddy) that the fans can sing along with like Chelsea Dagger, Rock and Roll #2 etc start? Also last team to use the goal song too
I searched all over the internet for an answer, and apparently the Chicago Black Hawks first used it in Chicago Stadium in the 1973 Stanley Cup Finals. It was a Kahlenberg Marine Horn. They used it off-and-on for about a decade, before both them and the Minnesota North Stars added permanent goal horns around 1983-84, and the rest is history!
Chicago was also the first NHL team to add a permanent organ in 1929, apparently.
I think Toronto may have been the last to use a goal horn. I can remember games from the early days of the ACC where there was no horn. Then for a few years they had a goal horn that was so low it was barely audible on TV over the crowd noise, and now they have the Kings-esque one they use today.
Islanders had a siren installed for the 81 playoffs maybe earlier. it was terrifying.
Canadien (and Nords?) fans had Na Na Hey Hey as a song in the 80's.The fans actually sang this song, and it wasn't piped in as entertainment.
Winnipeg didn't get theirs until..... 1992-93 or so?
I remember their double-OT goal vs. Edmonton in the playoffs in 1990 and I am almost certain they didn't have one then. But, I am pretty sure there was one when Teemu Selanne broke the rookie scoring record a few years later.
