The 2018-19 NHL season was the 102nd season of operation (101st season of play) of the National Hockey League (NHL). The regular season began on October 3, 2018, and ended on April 6, 2019.

The 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs began on April 10, 2019, and the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals concluded on June 12, 2019, with the St. Louis Blues winning their first Stanley Cup in the Finals over the Boston Bruins in seven games.

League BusinessEdit

Collective Bargaining AgreementEdit

The current collective bargaining agreement (CBA) is in its seventh season. The NHL can choose to opt out of the CBA on September 1, 2019, or the NHLPA can choose to opt out of the CBA on September 19, 2019.

Salary CapEdit

On June 21, 2018, the National Hockey League Players' Association announced that the salary cap would be set at $79.5 million per team for the 2018–19 season.

Rule ChangesEdit

No major rule changes have been implemented this season.

On-ice ads in the rink cornersEdit

After a trial during the 2018 All-Star Game and China games, the NHL began to allow teams to sell on-ice advertising placements in the corners of the rink.

NHL chief revenue officer Keith Wachtel estimated that these new placements could provide up to $10 million in additional revenue to teams per season.

During the playoffs, these advertising areas will be controlled by the league.

Sports BettingEdit

On October 29, 2018, it was announced that MGM Resorts International would become the NHL's "official sports wagering partner" in the United States; this deal includes direct access to new forms of internal statistics data, as well as brand licensing agreements in relation to its sportsbooks, and came in the wake of a court ruling earlier in the year which declared the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (a U.S. law that forbade the legalization of sports betting outside of Nevada and other exempted states) to be unconstitutional.

ExpansionEdit

On December 4, 2018, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman officially announced that the league had approved an expansion team in Seattle, which is planned to begin play in the 2021–22 NHL season.

To accommodate the addition in 2021, the new Seattle NHL team will be placed in the Pacific Division, while the Arizona Coyotes will be moved to the Central Division.

Media RightsEdit

This is the eighth season under the NHL's ten year U.S. rights deal with NBC Sports and fifth season of its twelve year Canadian rights deals with Sportsnet and TVA Sports.

On December 20, 2017, CBC Television and Rogers Communications struck an agreement to renew its sublicensing agreement for Hockey Night in Canada through the end of Rogers's current broadcast contract. The two sides had previously reached an agreement to extend its original four-year agreement by an additional year.

Rogers announced that long-time commentator Bob Cole will retire from Hockey Night after calling a limited schedule of 10 games.

Three teams have shifted their radio broadcast rights exclusively to internet radio, all of which are in heavily crowded large media markets with multiple sports teams seeking a limited number of radio outlets.

The Los Angeles Kings "Audio Network" will now be exclusively carried on iHeartRadio.

The New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders have a broadcast agreement with Entercom for the New York City market that will see only a limited number of games broadcast on their flagship sports station, WFAN, with the rest being carried on the company's Radio.com platform (the university radio station WRHU remains the Islanders' radio flagship).

WFAN had already carried only a limited number of games from those teams in recent seasons, previously pawning off the remainder on other non-sports stations such as WNYM

In an effort to expand the league's television audience in Europe, the NHL began to schedule a "European Game of the Week" broadcast during the season for its European rightsholders. The initiative launched with an NHL Global Series game in Gothenburg, Sweden, on October 6, 2018.

Fifty other weekend games were also scheduled within the afternoon window so they could air live during the primetime hours in Europe.

DraftEdit

The 2018 NHL Entry Draft was held June 22 and 23, 2018. The Buffalo Sabres, by virtue of winning the draft lottery on April 28, held the first overall selection, using it to select defenseman Rasmus Dahlin.

Preseason games in ChinaEdit

Two preseason games were played in China.

The Calgary Flames and Boston Bruins played one game (Calgary as home team) at the Shenzhen Universiade Sports Center in Shenzhen on September 15, 2018, and played another (Boston as home team) at Cadillac Arena in Beijing on September 19, 2018.

Preseason games in EuropeEdit

Two preseason games were played in Europe.

The New Jersey Devils played against SC Bern at PostFinance Arena in Bern, Switzerland, on October 1, 2018.

The Edmonton Oilers played against Kölner Haie at Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany, on October 3, 2018.
