NHL Super Schedule 2014-15: Travel Miles by Team

For the first time since the 2008-9 season, when I first started analyzing NHL travel miles for each league season, the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes will lead the NHL in miles traveled during the upcoming 2014-15 season, with 49,818 miles. The NHL released the complete Regular Season schedule earlier today, so for the seventh straight year I’ve put together data on travel mileage and the number of games played on back-to-back nights by each NHL team, the main factors people use when talking about the burden of travel in professional hockey.

For all the details on this season, as well as how they compare to the last two full seasons, consult the table below (click on the column headings to re-sort the table by that value). If you have a blog or website and wish to use this information, feel free to copy & paste the table below, all I ask is that you include the sourcing information at the bottom.
