NHL Team Sweep History

NHL team history includes all iterations of a team’s name. For example, the Calgary Flames includes all data when they were known as the Atlanta Flames.

There are two instances in which a current team is not associated with a former team of the same name.

  • The Ottawa Senators (since 1992) are considered a separate team from the original Ottawa Senators, which existed from 1883-1934.
  • The Winnipeg Jets of today began as the Atlanta Thrashers in during the 1999-2000. Since 2011-12, they have been known as the Winnipeg Jets. They are not affiliated with the original Winnipeg Jets (1972-1996). The original Winnipeg Jets history is included with the Arizona Coyotes. When the new Winnipeg Jets returned in 2011-12, they did not regain the history of the original team.

*Note: The High Seed is the team with Home Ice advantage.
