League business

Salary cap

In December 2015 commissioner Gary Bettman informed teams that he projected the salary cap to be at least $74.5 million for the 2016–17 season, and that it could increase as much as $3.1 million. It was eventually set at $73.1 million[1]

Rule changes

Expansion

On June 22, 2016, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman officially announced that the league had approved an expansion team in Las Vegas, Nevada, later christened the Vegas Golden Knights, who are set to begin play in the 2017–18 season.[2]

Media rights

Canadian rightsholder Rogers Media reinstated Ron MacLean as host of Hockey Night in Canada for the 2016–17 season to replace George Stroumboulopoulos, whose introduction in the 2014–15 season was met with mixed reception by viewers. MacLean will host the early game of the weekly doubleheader, with David Amber handling the late games. Alongside HNIC, MacLean continues to host the travelling, Sunday-night Hometown Hockey games on Sportsnet.[3][4][5]

On June 20, 2016, the Buffalo Sabres announced that it had agreed to a 10-year extension of its regional television rights deal with MSG, which saw the establishment of a joint venture known as MSG Western New York—an expansion of MSG's existing regional feed for the Sabres' market which contains additional team-produced programming for the Sabres and their sister NFL team, the Buffalo Bills. There were no on-air changes in staffing for Sabres telecasts.[6][7]

On June 27, 2016, Sports Business Daily reported that the NHL had reached a deal in principle with Fox Sports to allow in-market, authenticated online streaming for eligible pay TV subscribers, of regional NHL games on Fox Sports Networks via the Fox Sports Go service.[8]

Centennial celebration

The NHL's centennial logo

On September 27, 2016, the NHL announced that it would organize a series of initiatives and events throughout 2017 to mark the league's 100th year of operations, and the upcoming 2017–18 season, which will be the NHL's 100th season of play. The campaign began with the NHL Centennial Classic outdoor game on January 1, 2017, and will continue throughout the calendar year, including documentaries and a daily "Time Capsule" feature across NHL media properties, a "Centennial Truck Tour" with a traveling museum and other activities that will visit each NHL market over the course of the year, a 2017 Winter Classic-themed float appearing during the Tournament of Roses Parade, and the unveiling of the top 100 players during the weekend of the All-Star Game, and the top 100 moments of the league's history later in the year.[9]

A centennial emblem was designed, which features a banner wrapped around the number 100 with the current NHL shield in the foreground. Both the banner and the number 100 are in same silver colour as the NHL shield. Since January 1, this emblem has been featured on all game pucks, and as shoulder patches on all jerseys.[10][11][12]

The centennial campaign extends into the following 2017–18 season. On March 17, 2017, the NHL announced that the Ottawa Senators would host an outdoor game against the Montreal Canadiens, the NHL 100 Classic, at Lansdowne Park on December 16, 2017.<[13][14]

Postponed games

The Detroit Red WingsCarolina Hurricanes game scheduled for December 19, 2016 at PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina was postponed due to poor ice conditions.[40] The game was rescheduled for March 27, 2017. This will result in the two teams playing in Raleigh on consecutive nights, as they were already scheduled to play each other on March 28,[41] and causing Detroit to play games on three consecutive nights.

The Winnipeg JetsNew Jersey Devils game scheduled for March 14, 2017 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey was postponed due to the effects of the March 2017 nor'easter.[42] The game was rescheduled for March 28.
