About National Hockey League (NHL)
The National Hockey League or NHL is a professional ice hockey league in North America comprising 32 teams—25 in the United States and 7 in Canada. It has a total of 56 divisions. Teams in each division are called the "teams of the division" and compete against each other in a divisional format. The number of teams in different divisions depends on the geographical location of a team. In the past, the NHL had Division I ( now called Division II) and Division III; in more recent years, there have been Division IV (formerly known as Division VII) teams.
In the current season, NHL games are broadcast on NBC in both the US and Canada (or NBCSN in Ontario). The NHL also has several regional leagues throughout North and South America, as well as the International Hockey Federation (IHF), World Hockey Association (WHA), and World Ice Hockey (World Ice).
In addition, each team has one or more official "rinks" that the team's players and management can train on. These rinks are run by NHLPA officials as part of league rules, and the athletes have the right to wear union attire. Players are required to be at least 18 years of age and have signed agreements with the union. Although the players are not required by the league to play a minimum number each season on any team, they are expected to spend at a certain minimum per game in order to accrue points. Points are awarded to players that accumulate points in games won, on goal differential, overtime goals scored, wins, penalty minutes, or any combination of any of these. A player may earn two or three points per regular season game. If a player reaches the 30-point mark, that player can earn three additional points for each point he accumulates in all games played by that season.
