From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1999–2000 NHL season was the 83rd regular season of the National Hockey League. Twenty-eight teams each played 82 games. The New Jersey Devils defeated the defending champion Dallas Stars for their second Stanley Cup championship. During the regular season, no player reached the 100-point plateau - the first time this had happened in a non-lockout season since 1967-68.

League business

Starting in the 1999–2000 season, teams would get one point for an overtime loss in the regular season instead of zero.

This season was also the start of the NHL's partnership with ABC, who would televise a few regional games every season, as well as games 3–7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. ESPN, who with the ABC deal renewed their contract with the NHL, continued to show regular season and playoff games as well as the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final.

Wayne Gretzky's jersey number, 99 was retired league-wide on February 6, 2000.

1999–2000 was the inaugural season for the Atlanta Thrashers. It was also the first year for the Carolina Hurricanes' home rink, the Raleigh Entertainment and Sports Arena.

A new award, the Roger Crozier Saving Grace Award, was introduced for this season for the goaltender with the best save percentage.

The 2000 Stanley Cup Playoffs marked the first time in history that the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens both missed the playoffs in the same season.
