Stanley Cup, division winners and awards


The 2021-22 NHL season is set to begin on Tuesday night with a doubleheader on ESPN and ESPN+, but we’re looking beyond just those two matchups.

Will the Lightning pull off the three-peat? How well will the Kraken do in their first season? And who will take home all of the individual hardware?

We’ve gathered our cross-platform ESPN hockey family together to predict the winners of each division, along with the Stanley Cup champion and players who will win all of the major awards.
