Fact:

The Ottawa Senators (Original Founded in 1917. Current Founded in 1992.) and Winnipeg Jets (Original Founded in 1979. Current Founded in 2011.) had to get permission to use “Ottawa Senators” and “Winnipeg Jets” as their team name as there were previous teams who used those names which either relocated or left the league.
