The Colorado Avalanche are among oddsmakers' projected division winners for the 2019-20 season.

Colorado is the favorite to come out on top in the ultracompetitive Central Division following a busy summer. The team acquired Nazem Kadri and Andre Burakovsky in separate trades and signed free agent Joonas Donskoi, among other forwards, to reinforce an already potent offense.

Oddsmakers favor the Washington Capitals, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Vegas Golden Knights to claim the NHL's other divisional crowns.
