About

The National Hockey League (NHL) is an unincorporated not-for-profit association which operates a major professional ice hockey league of franchised member clubs, of which several are currently located in Canada and many more in the United States.

Currently headquartered in New York City, the NHL is widely considered to be the premier professional ice hockey league in the world, and one of the major professional sports leagues of the United States and Canada.

The Stanley Cup, the oldest professional sports trophy in North America, is awarded annually to the league playoff champion at the end of each season.
