The 2022-23 NHL season is in full swing. We have our first NHL standings and news update for the month. So let’s jump in with what is happening around the league.

November NHL News, Standings, and Opinion (Wednesday 11/2)

Atlantic Division Standings:

Boston Bruins: 9-1-0 18 Points

Buffalo Sabres: 6-3-0 12 Points

Tampa Bay Lightning: 6-4-0 12 Points

Florida Panthers: 5-4-1 11 Points

Detroit Red Wings:4-3-2 10 Points

Montreal Canadiens: 5-5-0 10 Points

Toronto Maple Leafs: 4-4-2 10 Points

Ottawa Senators: 4-5-0 8 Points

Division News: 

The Boston Bruins have been the biggest surprise of the NHL this season. They have a near-perfect record and have performed really well up to this point. Boston is having one of the best last dance runs we have seen with players like Bergeron, Krejci, and Pastrnak all playing well despite not being signed past this season.

Metropolitan Division Standings:

New Jersey Devils: 7-3-0 14 Points

New York Rangers: 6-3-2 14 Points

Carolina Hurricanes: 6-2-1 13 Points

Philadelphia Flyers: 5-2-2 12 Points

New York Islanders: 6-4-0 12 Points

Washington Capitals: 5-4-2 12 Points

Pittsburgh Penguins: 4-4-2 10 Points

Columbus Blue Jackets: 3-7-0 6 Points

Division News: 

One big piece of news out of the Metro has to be how good the New York Islanders have been. The Islanders are on a four-game winning streak and have turned things around after a rough start of the season.

Central Division Standings:

Dallas Stars: 6-3-1 13 Points

Winnipeg Jets: 5-3-1 11 Points

Minnesota Wild: 5-4-1 11 Points

Chicago Blackhawks: 4-4-2 10 Points

Colorado Avalanche: 4-4-1 9 Points

Arizona Coyotes: 3-5-1 7 Points

Nashville Predators: 3-6-1 7 Points

St. Louis Blues: 3-5-0 6 Points

Division News: 

The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the more interesting teams in the Central right now. Despite committing to a rebuild this offseason, their players on the ice have been doing their best to win games. Another team that has been fun to watch has to be the Dallas Stars. Dallas has won every game against division and conference rivals, but their losses have come against really strong teams in the East.

Pacific Division Standings:

Vegas Golden Knights: 9-2-0 18 Points

Edmonton Oilers: 7-3-0 14 Points

Seattle Kraken: 5-4-2 12 Points

Los Angeles Kings: 6-6-0 12 Points

Calgary Flames: 5-3-0 10 Points

Anaheim Ducks: 3-6-1 7 Points

San Jose Sharks: 3-8-1 7 Points

Vancouver Canucks: 2-6-2 6 Points

Division News: 

The Seattle Kraken have one of the best rookies in the NHL right now, and another rookie who desperately needs to be played more. This division has three teams that have all struggled out the gate in Anaheim, San Jose and Vancouver. It will be interesting to see if any of them will be leading the charge for the tank for Bedard event throughout the year.
