    Remember when hockey in California was a novelty? You had the Golden Seals with their goofy jerseys and white skates. The Los Angeles Kings seemed like nothing more than a token gift to the West Coast.

    Now, hockey in California is real, it’s a thing, and it’s getting much more serious with the American Hockey League’s announcement of the formation of the Pacific Division and the addition of five California franchises to start play in 2015-16. The breakdown from the release:

    - The Anaheim Ducks will purchase the Norfolk Admirals AHL franchise and will relocate it from Norfolk, Va., to San Diego, Calif.   

    - The AHL franchise owned by the Calgary Flames will relocate from Glens Falls, N.Y., to Stockton, Calif. 

    - The AHL franchise owned by the Edmonton Oilers will relocate from Oklahoma City, Okla., to Bakersfield, Calif. 

    - The AHL franchise owned by the Los Angeles Kings will relocate from Manchester, N.H., to Ontario, Calif.
