The NHL has made history as the 2024 Stanley Cup Final draws record viewership, rivaling the NBA and MLB in popularity across the United States.

In a surprising turn of events, the NHL Stanley Cup Finals drew in more viewers compared to the NBA and MLB, most likely because of the Panthers historic involvement and success. This is an impressive milestone for the NHL that has not been achieved in years.
«Seventh heaven: 16.3 million viewers watched Game 7 of the 2024 Stanley Cup Final in North America.» - NHL

The staggering number is a monumental achievement for the league.

This unprecedented viewership prompts questions: Was it the Connor McDavid effect? The thrill of a Canadian team in the final? The nail-biting Game 7? Or perhaps the remarkable comeback story leading up to the decisive game?
Its surely not just because of one of these reasons, but all of them combined to create the perfect scenario for the NHL to pull in viewers they wouldn't usually have.
Commissioner Gary Bettman must be thrilled by this achievement, reflecting the growth and expanding fanbase of the league.
Looking ahead, the NHL aims to build on this historic success. The journey continues with the 2024 Draft, set to be broadcast live this Friday from the prestigious Sphere in Las Vegas, promising another exhilarating event for hockey enthusiasts.
