They had yellow halos from 1971 to 1992.  It helped distinguish them a bit from the other navy & red teams.

They should do red and yellow with navy as tertiary.

Not all. Sacramento Kings, L.A. Kings, Oakland Raiders, L.A. Dodgers, S.F. Giants...heck, the 49ers have metallic gold, not yellow.

The Giants do have gold in their color scheme, LA Kings had yellow in the past, and any color of gold should fall under this because California is the golden state. Also Oakland had yellow in its color scheme for a few years, so it's really only the SAC Kings, LA Dodgers, and you are forgetting SJ Sharks, as the only teams that don't have some form of yellow/gold in their color scheme during any point of their history.

The Giants just added gold as a trim color within the past five seasons. Most of their existence, even in SF, it was not one of their colors. Although perhaps cream-colored home uniforms should count...

 

The Raiders had gold for, what, one season? Two? It's certainly not associated with them for the casual fan.

 

The Sharks' dark orange sometime tertiary color could probably count, as it's a gold-ish orange.

Here's a few of Chris Kunitz, who's played most of his career with the Penguins...

and as a Thrasher... Can't find any game pics of that stint though. He literally played 2 games for the Thrashers, after being claimed on Waivers, before being REclaimed by the Ducks...

Adding to the NY thread, I was surprised when I discovered that Phil retired as a player in New Jersey.

That number is placed horribly! I think Phil Jackson was also a player-coach if I am not mistaken?

Yeah. Agreed.

The Raiders wore gold from 1960-63.

The Orange, I don't think, counts.

I'm not all that familiar with old-school hockey. Did the Seals have green at one time and teal at another? Those two photos clearly have two different uniform colors in them.

 

Weren't the Seals also owned by Charlie Finley (Athletics' owner) at some point?

He was with the Ducks for parts of 5 seasons and won a Stanley Cup with them.  Nothing wrong about that.

They started with a different green, blue & white.

When Charles Finley bought the team he switched to Kelly green & yellow.

When he dumped the team on the league they switched to the teal & yellow.

 

Although the Finley era wasn't much loved by many fans--I did like those uniforms.  Instead of white jerseys they had yellow ones--that were basically a reversal of the green & yellow ones.

But he's been with the Penguins for 8 seasons, and won a Stanley Cup with them too... And too be honest, I forgot he played for the Ducks, so it looks wrong to me at least...

Charles O. Finley purchases the franchise

Yellow home jersey (replica) and colored skates of the Golden Seals, on display at the International Hockey Hall of Fame

Prior to the 1970–71 season, Charles O. Finley, the flamboyant owner of baseball's Oakland Athletics, purchased the Seals.[3] Finley and Roller Derby boss Jerry Seltzer had both put in a bid on the team. Although Seltzer's offer was slightly better and included a more detailed plan for revival, a majority of NHL owners from the "old establishment" voted in favor of Finley.[4] General manager Bill Torrey left by mid-season due to clashes with Finley.[5]

On October 15, 1970, with the new season already two games old, Finley announced that the team's name was being changed to California Golden Seals[6] ("Bay Area Seals" had been reported the previous week, and appears on some of that year's promotional material), following a number of other marketing gimmicks intended to sell the team to the fans, among them changing the Seals' colors to green and gold to match those of the popular A's. The team's uniform crest was now the word "Seals" in a unique typeface, but an alternate logo using a sketch based on a photo of star player Carol Vadnais was used on marketing materials such as pennants, stickers and team programs. The original 1967 California Seals logo recolored in green and gold was often seen on trading cards and other unofficial material, but was never adopted by the team. The Seals are remembered for wearing white skates, but initially Torrey convinced Finley to use green and gold painted skates instead, as team colored skates were a trend of the period.[5] However, this was all for naught, as the Seals finished with the worst record in the NHL that year. On May 22, 1970, the Seals traded their pick in the first round of the 1971 NHL Amateur Draft to the Montreal Canadiens along with François Lacombe in return for Montreal's first round pick in the 1970 Draft (Seals selected Chris Oddleifson), Ernie Hicke, and cash.[7] As a result of the Seals' dreadful season, the Canadiens had the top pick in the 1971 Draft, and used it to select future Hall of Famer Guy Lafleur. This transaction now ranks as one of the most one-sided deals in NHL history.[8]
