How Many Games Are in the 2022-23 NHL Season?

NHL teams play 82 games in the regular season, meaning there are a total of 1,312 games in the 2022-23 NHL regular-season schedule.

Each of the 32 teams play three or four games against the seven teams in their division, three games against the eight teams in the other division in their conference, and two games against the 16 teams from the other conference.

A total of 16 teams advance to the playoffs at the end of the regular season — the top three ranked teams in each division, plus two Wild Card teams from each conference.
