   This October, the NHL season is going to begin. The NHL season is a big time for sports fans. The pre-season is currently going on right now. All the teams are in trainin getting ready for the actual season to begin. Some of the stars of the team are not playing in the pre-season because they don’t want to risk an injury.

   The NHL was created on November 26 1917 in Montreal Canada. The NHL started with only 4 teams, then over the past ten decades, it expanded into 32 teams. The beginning of the season is very exciting. The energy is electric because it’s like the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. It’s a home opener and a lot of people want to see that first game of the season. Speaking of the Stanley Cup, it is the biggest trophy in all of sports, and it’s been around since 1917 and currently has over 2,300 signatures.

    During this upcoming season, the top teams like Edmonton Oilers, Washington Capitals, Calgary Flames, Detroit Red Wings, Tampa Bay Lightning and other teams will compete to win the Stanley Cup against last year’s champions, the Colorado Avalanche.
