Part of the expansion that doubled the size of the league to a dozen teams in 1967-68, the California Seals spent nine seasons in the NHL before relocating to become the Cleveland Barons.

Initially named the California Seals, the team was renamed in their first season, adopting the Oakland Seals as their name in their inaugural season. From 1970-71 to 1975-76 they were called the California Golden Seals.

Making the playoffs twice the Seals, who never posted a winning season, lost in the opening round in both 1969 and 1970.

On November 18, 1968, the Canadiens and Seals skated against each other with Oakland treating their fans to a 2-1 victory in the first game between the teams.

The teams never met in postseason play.
