From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The National Hockey League's Pacific Division is one of three divisions that make up the Western Conference. It was formed in 1993 as part of a league realignment. The Pacific Division is the successor of the Smythe Division, though of the current teams, only the Los Angeles Kings, Phoenix Coyotes (as the Winnipeg Jets ) and San Jose Sharks played in the Smythe Division.

The Pacific Division is centered around the southwestern United States, with three teams based in California, one in Arizona, and one in Texas.

The Dallas Stars have the most Pacific Division titles, with five. Three Stanley Cup winners have come from the Pacific Division: the Colorado Avalanche in 1996, the Stars in 1999, and the Anaheim Ducks in 2007.
