Six teams from the Central Division have point totals over 90, led by the Chicago Blackhawks at 99.5.

Other notables include: The Nashville Predators at 98.5, the New York Rangers at 95.5, Toronto Maple Leafs at 94.5, and Detroit Red Wings at 78.5.

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights opened at 68.5 points for their inaugural season.
