NHL 2024-24 Stanley Cup playoff chances and projected standings – The Athletic

By Dom Luszczyszyn6h ago

Welcome to our NHL projections and probabilities page where you will find each team’s projected point total, its probability of making the playoffs and its odds of advancing to each subsequent round, including winning the Stanley Cup.

The projections are based on 50,000 simulations of the remainder of the season, which factors in each team’s projected strength, current health and strength of schedule (which includes opponent strength, venue and rest). Each team’s projected strength is based on the projected value of the players on its roster, which is based on their Offensive and Defensive Rating. 

This page will be updated each morning. Click to expand any chart for a larger view.

All projections and probabilities are rounded to the nearest whole number.
