Sportsnet.ca has confirmed the NHL’s current proposal when it comes to division alignments. The Vegas Golden Knights would be in with the Anaheim Ducks, L.A. Kings, San Jose Sharks, Arizona Coyotes, Dallas Stars, Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues.
Sportsnet also noted there is still some debate around where the Blues and Minnesota Wild will end up, and the format is not set yet.
Most of the other details that have been circulating such as a January 13th or 15th start date and 56-game season seem to remain intact. The NHL was to have a Board of Governors call today to update owners on negotiations. Any realignment would have to be approved by the players before being finalized.
