As of right now, there isn’t too much on this topic. The NHL’s board of goveners approved a plan that would see the NHL have 4 conferences instead of 6 divisions and 2 conferences. No names yet for each conference, but here are the conferences for the upcoming season.


Conference 1: MTL, TOR, OTT, BOS, BUF, FLD, TB

Conference 2: PHI, PIT, NYR, NYI, NJD, WSH, CAR

Conference 3: LAK, ANA, SJS, VAN, CGY, EDM, COL, PHX

Conference 4: DET, CHI, STL, MIN, NSH, CLB, WPG, DAL

Tampa Bay and Florida are very separated from their conference.

What do you guys think of this new alignment?


About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
