From the first puck drop to the sound of the final buzzer, the National Hockey League is your source for sports played at the highest levels of excitement and competition. Whether you're watching the game from the comfort of your sofa or experiencing the rush of catching the action in person, nothing compares to seeing the tremendous talents of the best hockey players in the world take center stage with the NHL.
The NHL consists of 30 teams, divided into two conferences with each one having its special place in hockey history. In the Western Conference, there are plenty of iconic organizations that have produced so many legendary players and memorable teams, including the 2015 Stanley Cup® Champion Chicago Blackhawks® and the Los Angeles Kings®, among others. In the Eastern Conference, Original Six™ teams the Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings have a storied history of playoff success and Stanley Cup® victories.
Even those relatively unfamiliar with hockey can surely recognize Lord Stanley's Cup™, the oldest and most revered trophy in professional sports. Every year, once a winner is crowned, every player gets to have the trophy to himself for an entire day, and there isn't one athlete in the league who isn't driven throughout the entire season to take Lord Stanley's Cup home. Whether you're a die-hard hockey fan or a beginner to the sport, there's no better time to get in on the action and catch all the intense competition this NHL season!
