The league expanded by two more teams, as the [[Kansas City Scouts]] and [[Washington Capitals]] joined the league, making the NHL an 18 team league. The schedule was then bumped up from 78 games to 80, and the previously two division league was split into two conferences and four divisions. The Black Hawks found themselves in the newly created [[Smythe Division]] with the [[Minnesota North Stars]], [[St. Louis Blues]], [[Vancouver Canucks]], and the expansion team [[Kansas City Scouts]]. The Smythe Division was part of the newly created [[Campbell Conference]].
