If you thought the bubble-induced 2020 NHL season was wild, wait until you see what 2021 has in store. A 56-game schedule, conference realignment including an all-Canada North division, and the San Jose Sharks forced to practice and play “home” games in Arizona due to pandemic restrictions in the Bay Area could make this the most unique season in league history.

What won’t change is the intense action on the ice and passion displayed by fans (even as most arenas sit empty when pucks drop). And, of course, you can still have some fun with NHL online betting? Here are your odds for everything from division winners to postseason awards to the team most likely to hoist the Stanley Cup Trophy later this year.
