Welcome to the BetNHL.ca Hockey Blog.

This section is generally a mish-mash of random articles covering hockey.

We usually write here during the off-season or if there is a break for say the Olympics. Sometimes on a day with no tips we will write an article.

All of the articles are filtered by category. This will allow you to look for the content you’re interested in easier.

If there are any topics you want us to cover or if you have any suggestions for off-season contact, contact us.

Here are the articles with a description of each:
