The State of Every NHL Pacific Division Team at the Olympic Break

It's the Olympic break, and time to check in on the Pacific Division as its teams prepare for the final stretch. Some of the seven teams are in the playoff hunt, others are preparing for the draft lottery, and there are trade deadline possibilities for them all.

We'll look at where every team currently sits in the standings, where they were expected to be and whether they've been trending hot or cold. Using analytics we'll also identify each team's key strength and biggest potential weakness down the stretch.

It's been a surprising season so far, with a division leader that very few analysts predicted, and a division basement occupied by one of this year's most unexpected disappointments. In between there are three teams in tight races for the playoffs, all of whom are in various stages of a cold streak.

All this information and more begins on the next slide, as we take a close look at each of the Pacific Division's teams in alphabetical order.

 

Playoff probabilities calculated come from Sports Club Stats, Hockey Reference and Playoff Status. All other advanced statistics are via writer's own original research unless otherwise noted.
