First Look at the New Divisional Alignment for Next Season

The NHL and the NHLPA have made a tremendous amount of progress on talks to resume play and an announcement is expected any day!

While it's been confirmed by some sources a 56-game season appears to be on tap for the 2020-21 NHL season, it also is going to bring us some new rivalries.

Here's how the divisions are expected to align:

The All-Canadian division has everything to do with the travel restrictions between the US and Canada and is going to be interesting to watch the likes of Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews battle it out on a regular basis. Tampa Bay appears to have a light schedule with their new division, which should be interesting to watch if there's a Stanley Cup hangover for the 2019-20 champs.

January 13th, get your popcorn ready!
