Rangers top Forbes’ list of most valuable teams


The Original Six is well represented on Forbes’ latest list of the most valuable NHL teams, with the New York Rangers sitting on top.

The Rangers were valued at $1.55 billion, followed by the Toronto Maple Leafs ($1.45 billion), Montreal Canadiens ($1.3 billion), Chicago Blackhawks ($1.05 billion) and Boston Bruins ($925 million). The other Original Six team, the Detroit Red Wings, checked in at No. 8 ($775 million).

According to Forbes, the value of the average NHL team rose 6 percent to a record $630 million.

Last year’s Cinderella team, the Vegas Golden Knights, were ranked No. 12 at $575 million, which is 15 percent more than their expansion fee. That bodes well for the new Seattle franchise, which will ante up $650 million to start play in 2021.
