The NHL has revealed the names of the new divisions.
Just as a condensed recap, the NHL has realigned for the 2013-14 campaign which means, among many other things, that their are now four divisions instead of six. In the Western Conference, Anaheim, Calgary, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Jose, and Vancouver will make up the Pacific Division. Meanwhile Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Minnesota, Nashville, St. Louis, and Winnipeg are in the Central Division. The Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division will be comprised of Boston, Buffalo, Detroit, Florida, Montreal, Ottawa, Tampa Bay and Toronto. Those division names are all pretty standard, but the last one's name is pretty unique. The Metropolitan Division will consist of Carolina, Columbus, New Jersey, both New York teams, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington.
