The National Hockey League was forced to make some changes for the 2020/21 season. It was reduced to a 56-game regular season due to the ongoing pandemic, down from the usual 82.
Teams were drawn into four new divisions, including one that features the seven Canadian franchises. Teams only faced those in their division during the regular season.
Thankfully, the playoffs will feature 16 teams as normal, with the top four in each division reaching the post-season. All of them will compete in the standard best-of-seven series.
You won't catch a single NHL match on Australian free-to-air TV, but there are plenty of other ways to keep up with your ice hockey favourites. We've laid them all out below:
To get your ice hockey fix, you need Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now, Kayo Sports or Fetch TV. The latter receives broadcasts via ESPN. You can also access it via the league's own streaming service, NHL.TV. Read on for more details.
Kayo Sports subscribers get access to content from ESPN, so they will be able to stream a minimum of three games per week during the regular season and enjoy extensive coverage of the playoffs right through to the Stanley Cup Finals.
A Basic Kayo subscription costs $25/month and enables you to watch on two screens, while the Premium subscription, at $35/month, lets you watch three simultaneous streams. Both subscriptions include access to HD content live and on-demand from more than 50 sports.
You can sign up for a 14-day free trial to see if the service fits your needs. There's no contract involved, you can cancel your subscription at any time. We highly recommend diving into our deep analysis of Kayo Sports, which details all of the unique features offered by this classy app.
Kayo Sports is compatible with computers, smartphones and tablets, Chromecast, Telstra TV, Apple TV, PS4, PS5, Android TV and select smart TVs.
ESPN is part of Foxtel's premium Sports Pack, so pay TV subscribers can watch NHL games live on TV or stream with the Foxtel Go app to laptops and mobile devices. The app is free with any Foxtel subscription, but the Sports Pack must be added to the Foxtel Plus package. This brings the minimum monthly cost up to $74 per month, plus any installation fees.
Alternative, you can watch NHL coverage with Foxtel Now. ESPN is part of the Sport Pack, which costs $29/month. You also need the Essentials Pack to gain access to it. The total charge is $54/month, cheaper than Foxtel iQ but still significantly more than Kayo. A 10-day free trial is available for new customers.
Foxtel Now is compatible with computers, smartphones and tablets, the Foxtel Now Box, Sony Android TVs, Telstra TV, Chromecast/Airplay and PS4.
ESPN is also available in the Vibe channel pack from Fetch TV, which costs only $6/month. However, the total price of your subscription will depend on whether you purchase a Fetch TV box outright or get it through a broadband provider. So the overall price will be dramatically more.
NHL.TV is the National Hockey League's own subscription streaming service. It's the only way to watch every single game from the NHL including playoffs live. There is an all access pass for US$99.99 or a monthly pass available for US$24.99. For more information check out our full NHL.TV guide.
Also known as NHL TV the service comes with some unique features to enhance your viewing experience. It's also compatible with iOS and Android devices, Mac, PC, Amazon Fire, Apple TV and Chromecast.
