The NHL is considered the top ranked professional Ice Hockey league in the world and it is the 5th wealthiest professional sports league in the world by revenue.

The league was organised to replace the National Hockey Association in 1917 and began with just 4 teams in Canada. In 1924 it expanded into the USA and now consists of 32 teams, 25 in the USA and 7 in Canada.

The league is divided into an Eastern and Western Conference, each containing 2 divisions.

Season Structure

The NHL regular season runs from October to April with the pre-season taking place September to October and a the Stanley Cup playoffs in Post Season.

Since 2021 each team plays 82 games in the regular season, half at home and half on the road. 2 points are awarded for a win, 1 point for losing in overtime or a shootout and 0 points for a loss in regular time. At the end of the regular season the team with the most points is awarded the Presidents Trophy.

The Stanley Cup playoffs take place post season from April to June with 8 teams from each Conference taking part. The final 2 Conference champions play in the Stanley Cup Final to decide the overall winner.

Team Performance

Up to the 2022 season 25 teams have won the cup and 20 of these are still active in the NHL. The best performing team in the NHL is the Montreal Canadiens with 24 Stanley Cup wins and 35 final appearances.

The current cup holders for the 2022 season are Colorado Avalanche claiming their 3rd Championship victory over Tampa Bay Lightning.

Betting on the NHL

Betting on the NHL isn't as popular as on some other sports but it's still a great game to bet on. Placing a simple Moneyline bet on the outcome of a game is easiest bet to place, but for the more adventurous you can place Puck Line or Goal Totals bets. You can also place Player or Team Prop bets on events such as first team to score, assists or goals saved. Live betting is also possible.

Futures bets can also be placed on the NHL. You can bet on teams to win their division or conference, League MVP or the eventual winner of the Stanley Cup.
