We’ve barely started in the National Hockey League (NHL) season, and we are already seeing a lot of sports betting picks on upcoming games from our handicappers. Given how popular hockey is, if you are into hockey betting, you should be taking note of the schedule for the season, and find out what you should expect in the NHL 2021-2022 Season.
The NHL season will run from October 12, to June 2022. What makes this particular season exciting? A lot of reasons, actually. First off, would be the schedule. In the past two years, hockey fans had less games to watch because of shortened campaigns due to the pandemic. This year, we are finally returning to the regular season. There will be a short break due to the Winter Olympics, but otherwise, there is a lot to expect.

This season, there will also be the debut of expansion franchise Seattle Krakens. This addition will actually stretch the campaign. If you look at the hockey lineups at bookie providers like 9DollarPerHead.com, you will be seeing 32 teams playing 82 regular season games this year. That’s a lot more games where you can earn money from, too!
Another exciting aspect about the new season would be to see what Tampa Bay Lightning could do. The Lightning are the defending Champions, and many are wondering if they can pull off a three-peat championship. Given their roster, they really could. Many hockey fans are also going to be looking at the Buffalo Sabres, who got Owen Power the first overall pick in the draft. Could Power be their ticket out of the regular season and finally get into the postseason?
Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Penguins may have a hard season ahead of them, with Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby both out during the start of the season. Many fans hope that they will recover and return to the ice soon. Many pundits are also looking at Alex Ovechkin, and when he will be breaking Wayne Gretzky’s 894-goal record.
