Philadelphia Rockets

The Philadelphia Rockets were a short-lived entry into the AHL from 1946-49, and rivaled the Quakers' record for futility. In their first season, 1946-47, they managed to win only five of 64 games, an AHL record that still stands. Somehow, they also had the league's leading scorer, Phil Hergesheimer, who recorded a 44-48-92 line. Despite Hergesheimer's success, the team gave up 400 goals while scoring only 188. The Rockets would improve -- but were still bad -- the next two seasons, winning 22 and 15 of 68 games each year. After their third season in 1948-49, management decided that was enough and folded the team.
