Longest active streaks

Post-season appearance streaks

A post-season appearance streak is continued by making the NHL playoffs after the regular season. Since the first round of the playoffs consists of 8 series, there will always be 16 teams in this list (of the 30 teams in the NHL).

Note that the Detroit Red Wings' 18 season streak of making the post-season is the longest active streak of any of the four major professional sports leagues (NHL, NFL, NBA, MLB).
