June 11th 2012 – Los Angeles Kings win their first Stanley Cup.

June 22nd 2012 – Nail Yakupov is drafted 1st overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers.

July 2012
- Talks of the NHL possibly going into a lock-out if no new CBA Agreement is signed.

- Forbes Magazine publishes an article that mentions the bad financial state of many current NHL teams.

- Certain teams request financial aid from the league but the NHL is unable to provide them with the necessary support in order to pursue operations.

- Gary Bettman announces that they will not try to keep the teams that are financially unstable in the league like they previously did and that these teams will need to find new homes if they want to stay in the NHL.

- The following teams are on the market and need to relocate in order to keep playing in the NHL: Colombus Blue Jackets, Phoenix Coyotes, Florida Panthers, Anaheim Ducks, New-Jersey Devils and the New-York Islanders.

August 2012

- The new teams' names and jerseys will be revealed later on before the start of the pre-season.

-The proposed divisional realignment was as follows:

August 20th 2012 – Gary Bettman holds a press conference in New-York City to announce the 6 news teams’ names and uniforms.
