The 2022-23 NHL regular season left us with quite a few surprises. The Boston Bruins finished the season with 135 points and a +128 goal differential on their way to setting the record for most regular season wins in NHL history with 65. The Bruins finished 23 points ahead of the next closest squad, the Carolina Hurricanes, who finished with 113 points and a +53 goal differential. Toward the end of the season, the New Jersey Devils performed at a high level and nearly passed the Hurricanes in points, skyrocketing their NHL Stanley Cup odds in the process.
Parity remained the story in the Western Conference as just 16 points separated the first-place Vegas Golden Knights from the eighth-place Winnipeg Jets. Despite the early-season struggles, the Colorado Avalanche topped the Central Division with 109 points and a +54 goal differential. The Edmonton Oilers made a late push to end the season, winning nine straight games thanks to stellar play from Hart Trophy favorite Connor McDavid, who finished with a league-leading 64 goals and 89 assists.
The market for the Vezina Trophy remained tight as the regular season came to a close with Linus Ullmark and Ilya Sorokin battling it out and posting the best odds to win it. Both Ullmark and Sorokin started strong and finished strong, posting .938 and .924 save percentages, respectively. Ullmark finished with a league-leading 40 wins and 1.89 goals-against average.
