Professional Content Writer Wanted: Rewrite the Following Article in an Astonishing News Format in English, Including HTML Tags


The Vegas Golden Knights shocked the sports world by winning the NHL’s Stanley Cup in only six seasons, making it one of the fastest journeys to a championship in North America’s “Big Four” sports leagues.

Can the Golden Knights repeat as champions in the upcoming season and become the first NHL team to do so since the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2020-21?

Alternatively, the Colorado Avalanche, who surprisingly got eliminated in the first round last season, are determined to reclaim the Stanley Cup, which they last won two seasons ago.

The Boston Bruins, who dominated the regular season by setting NHL records for the most wins (65) and points (135), suffered an early exit in the playoffs, losing to the Florida Panthers, a team that went on to face the Golden Knights in the championship series.

Will an underdog team surprise everyone and lift the Stanley Cup in June? Let’s not forget that the Golden Knights had the eighth-best odds at +1600 before the last season.

FOX Sports wagering expert Chris “The Bear” Fallica believes that the Los Angeles Kings, led by defenseman Drew Doughty and two-way center Anže Kopitar, each with five All-Star appearances, have a good chance of winning their third Cup.

Let’s take a look at the odds for the upcoming NHL season:
