NHLPA Player Poll

TORONTO (June 17, 2021) – While hockey fans are enjoying an exciting postseason, the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) today unveiled its 2020-21 NHLPA Player Poll results on NHLPA.com.

 Between March and April of the regular season, NHL players from each of the 31 clubs were once again anonymously surveyed by the NHLPA. A total of 490 players took part in the player poll this season. The membership weighed in on a variety of on- and off-ice topics covering skills, teams and fellow players around the league.

­­The players were polled on numerous questions, such as best goal-scorer; most complete player; best shot; who they would want on their side if they had to win one game; and whether they would like to see a series-style schedule carried forward. Some highlights of the results also include:

Most interesting question might be “Would you like to see a series-style schedule carried forward?”.

2/3rds of the players said yes. I’m guessing they prefer less travel.

We know the owners would probably want it because the traveling costs would be less.

I wonder how much weight the season ticket holders will have. I would think they’d be the ones most opposed to it.

I’m not a big fan as I have to travel to see any NHL games and I like to see a couple games on a typical trip. I’d much rather see multiple opponents.
