NHL North Division Predictions 2021

For the first time in NHL history, all seven Canadian teams will be included in their own division known as the North division, which will be sponsored by Scotiabank for the 2021 season duration. The division includes the Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Winnipeg Jets, Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, and the Montreal Canadiens.

The favorite to take home the title of North division champion is, unsurprisingly, the Toronto Maple Leafs. In fact, oddsmakers have them with the fourth-best odds league-wide to win the Stanley Cup. They have some issues on defense, and inconsistency overall, but the team did make some major acquisitions in the offseason – adding Joe Thornton, Wayne Simmonds, and T.J. Brodie to the lineup. These players join existing superstars Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, and John Tavares. They also finished last season with the second-highest goal total in the league.

There is a little bit of a surprise with the Montreal Canadiens eking out the Edmonton Oilers in the odds this year. Sure, Montreal surprised the league when they defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins to qualify for the playoffs last season and they are most definitely a team that is on the rise. But we can never, ever look past the fact that the Edmonton Oilers boast both Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. In fact, Draisaitl was the only player to surpass 100-points last season, accumulating 110 points in 71 games. They’ve also addressed their weak defensive core over the past few seasons and added Tyson Barrie to their lineup this season.

For the most part, this division should play out exactly as it looks in the sportsbooks. Although Ottawa could surprise us. It’s not likely they make the playoffs this season but with the work they’ve done with their roster and prospects, Ottawa should be noticeably more competitive this season than they were last year.

Ultimately, we expect Toronto, Montreal, and Edmonton from the North division to secure playoff positions this season.
