Discover, Honda, MassMutual and Scotiabank have signed on as official sponsors of the individual National Hockey League divisions.
The designation for the 2020-21 season are Scotia NHL North Division, Honda NHL West Division, Discover NHL Central Division and the MassMutual NHL East Division.
The NHL also announced today that voting is now open for the 2020-21 NHL Preseason All-Division Team Fan Vote. The 2020-21 NHL Preseason All-Division Team Fan Vote gives fans the opportunity to celebrate the start of the season and the temporary division realignment by selecting their favorite Preseason All-Division Team at NHL.com/AllDivisionTeam.
From today through Jan.11, fans can select six players for each division team – three forwards, two defensemen, and one goalie, and share their selections across their social platforms with the official hashtag #NHLAllDivision.
One team will be selected for each of the four divisions and will be announced across NHL social media platforms prior to the start of the 2020-21 season.
As previously announced, in reaching agreement on the format for the 2020-21 season, the NHL and NHLPA determined that the ongoing closure of the U.S.-Canada border required realignment.
Each team in the MassMutual NHL East Division, and Discover NHL Central Division and Honda NHL West Division will play every other team in its division eight times, while each team in the Scotia NHL North Division will play every other team in its division nine or 10 times, to minimize team travel as much as possible.
