Since the NHL was founded in 1917, the NHL has grown from Canada's passion to a worldwide sport. In 2019, seventeen different countries were represented in the league. Not surprisingly, almost half the players are from Canada. However, you may be surprised to hear that even Australia has a player in the league (Nathan Walker).
From 1942-1967, there were only six teams in the NHL, which were colloquially known as the "Original Six." All six of those teams are still in the league, but 25 other squads join them. Before the 2021 season, the NHL will become a 32 team league with the addition of Seattle.
