The 2001–02 NHL season was the 85th regular season of the National Hockey League. Thirty teams each played 82 games. The Stanley Cup winners were the Detroit Red Wings, who won the best of seven series 4–1 against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Dallas Stars moved their home games from Reunion Arena to American Airlines Center.

The NHL honored the victims of 9/11 by having all players wear a patch on their jerseys, as well as a red, white and blue ribbon painted on the ice behind each net. On September 20, 2001, in the middle of a preseason game between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers with both teams tied up 2-2, 9 days after the attacks, the game was stopped. A message from United States President George W. Bush about the 9/11 attacks was broadcast on the arena video screen. After the message, the game did not resume and was declared a 2-2 tie.[1]

For the second time in three seasons, no player reached the 100-point plateau.[2]
