The Hockey Writers covers every team in the National Hockey League. We recognize that some of our visitors are relatively new to the game of hockey and to the NHL and may not be aware of all 30 NHL Teams. For your convenience here is our List of NHL teams – each team name is clickable and will bring you to all of the latest stories about that team.
