Here’s how American newspapers treated the return of the NHL

Philadelphia paper

It was pretty much a given that the end of the NHL lockout would be front page news in Canada...

Toronto paper

...but would American newspapers give it the same treatment? Let’s take a look:

Carolina paper
Chicago paper
Dallas paper
Denver paper
Detroit paper
Minnesota paper
Nashville paper
New Jersey paper
Phoenix paper
Pittsburgh paper
St. Louis paper
Tampa Bay paper
Washington paper
Los Angeles paper
Philadelphia paper

Anaheim paper
San Jose paper
Buffalo paper

Obviously this isn’t the most scientific way to measure a market’s level of interest in hockey. Sorry Capitals, but RG3’s getting the big headline today in Washington. (Go Seahawks!) And some papers are more sports-focused than others. But all of the ones we looked at had at least a mention, though you have to look pretty hard at the Denver Post.

Anyway, if we missed your local paper, here’s where we got all the front pages from.
