NHL Pacific Division

The Pacific Division is one of the two divisions that make up the Western Conference in the National Hockey League (NHL). Here are some key points about this division:

Formation and History: The Pacific Division was formed in 1993 during a league realignment.

It is the surviving successor of the Smythe Division (one of the original NHL divisions).

The other successor to the Smythe Division was the now-defunct Northwest Division.

Of the current teams in the Pacific Division, only the Anaheim Ducks, Seattle Kraken, and Vegas Golden Knights did not play in the Smythe Division.

Due to subsequent realignments, three of the Pacific Divisionโ€™s original teams (the Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, and Vancouver Canucks) left the division in 1998 but returned in 2013.

Interestingly, the Pacific Division is the only one in the NHL without any Original Six teams.

The current 8 franchises in the Pacific Division (in alphabetical order) and their home rinks are:

  • Anaheim Ducks: Honda Center, Anaheim, California, USA
  • Calgary Flames: Scotiabank Saddledome, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
  • Edmonton Oilers: Rogers Place, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
  • Los Angeles Kings: Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA
  • San Jose Sharks: SAP Center at San Jose, San Jose, California, USA
  • Seattle Kraken: Climate Pledge Arena, Seattle, Washington, USA (added in 2021โ€“22)
  • Vancouver Canucks: Rogers Arena, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
  • Vegas Golden Knights: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
