The National Hockey League is an ice hockey league. It is the most important in the United States and Canada. The NHL began in 1917. Some of the owners in the National Hockey Association had problems with owner Edward Livingstone, so they got rid of him by creating a new league. They started off with 5 teams, and only 2 of those remain today (The Montreal Canadiens, and the Toronto Maple Leafs, then known as the Toronto Arenas).

In 2017, the Vegas Golden Knights were created as the 31st and newest team. The championship is called the Stanley Cup. The most recent Stanley Cup winners are the Washington Capitals, who won their first.
