How many Canadian hockey teams are there?
What Canadian province has two NHL teams? Alberta is home to two National Hockey League teams, five Western Hockey League teams, the 16-team Alberta Junior Hockey League, and five Junior B hockey leagues comprising over 50 teams.
Why does the NHL not have more Canadian teams? Whatever the smokescreens thrown up, it appears that the NHL simply doesn’t want teams in Canada. The proposed move to Hamilton would have been a huge boon to the league, developing new rivalries with both the Leafs and the Sabres. The fans in Hamilton would fill the rink to capacity, and league revenues would go up.
