How to Watch NHL Hockey Games on Reddit, Hulu, Sling TV, DirecTV Now

If you have ever been in a situation where you are unable to see the puck drop at center ice because you aren’t in front of TV? Or maybe you live in Chicago Blackhawks country but you are an ardent Philadelphia Flyers fan.

Or, quite simply, you are just interested in an out of market game that is not shown on your local cable provider, and you don’t want to deal with an NHL Center Ice subscription, considerably spiking up your cable bill. We hear you. And have no fear, because as long as you are a member of the community, you can stream any NHL game you’d like….for free. Here’s how.

As you may know, Reddit is a multi-purpose online social news aggregation site that has subpages, known as subreddits, tailored to specific content that online members, commonly referred to as redditors, subscribe to. There are over 600.000 subreddits in the reddit universe.

In your case, the die hard NHL fanatic that doesn’t want to miss a minute of fast paced exhilarating hockey, you will be able to find subreddits specifically tailored to your needs. You will need to enter the appropriate keywords in the top right of the search bar so you can find the exact subreddit that you’re looking for regarding NHL streams.

So, to that end, we can’t think of a better keyword scheme than simply typing “NHL streams” into the search bar. After you hit “enter”, you will see a list of NHL streaming subreddits. The top two choices will represent the best avenues to get you from reddit, to streaming site, to NHL hockey in a matter of minutes.

The most popular NHL streaming subreddit with a community of subscribers over the 100,000’s in total is r/NHLStreams .

r/NHLStreams is the major city hub of the NHL free streaming community. As it has over 100,000 subscribers, the page if VERY active and you will see a lot of content posted by streamers, users who are looking for streams, and just hockey fans simply looking for fun internet banter (or trash talk).

There are occasionally stickied posts in green lettering at the top of the front page of r/NHLStreams, and this is essentially where you are going to want to go. After clicking on the post, you will see an in-depth list of resources that will cater to your NHL free streaming needs.

You will see links to free streaming sites, and other resources that will help your stream be of best quality.

If you are looking for the best possible free NHL streaming experience and you are willing to take some time to go through all of the presented information, then r/NHLStreams is 100% the way to go for you.

Let’s say that you are looking for an immediate link to your stream, regardless of stream quality (note: stream quality will never be awful, but it is more of a crapshoot), then you will benefit from r/nhl_streams.

This subreddit is a little different than r/NHLStreams due to the lowercase lettering and the underscore in the subreddit title. r/nhl_streams offers stream links to individual games on the front page.

From the front page of r/nhl_streams, you will find a link to whichever game you’re interested in. Both options work nicely, it is just a matter of your preference.
