How to watch NHL abroad: Choose an NHL VPN

Are you a passionate NHL fan living or traveling outside the US who needs a way to access every regular season game using NHL Game Pass or another streaming service? If that sounds like you, you'll need an NHL VPN to correctly align your connection with that of a US server, or one in another country - as we'll cover below.

Bearing this in mind, we've compiled the five top NHL VPN providers, so you can stream every bone-jarring check, zinging wrist-shot, or ankle-breaking pirouette by flailing defenders. Let's get to it below, but first, how about a little throwback from the myth, the legend, the G.O.A.T.

How Can I Watch The Games?

Just locate and pick your ideal VPN service for NHL games and preferably one you'll also be able to use for other purposes. You can also test a few out using the trial offers first to stream NHL matchups (or just use a money-back offer for a month to try things out). Afterwards, just follow the quick setup guides available on each provider's website and often included in the email you'll receive after registration.

Then, follow the setup instructions on each provider's website and install your VPN. Each NHL VPN on this list was chosen partly for its "non-techiness" and ease of setup (in addition to US servers and speed), bar BolehVPN, which is more suitable for those more intimate with VPNs.

The Best NHL VPN

Once you've setup your new VPN, just head on over to NHL.com (provided you have a US TV package of some sort, such as DirectTV), and stream away. That's it!

For those of you traveling out of the US and Mexico, thus lacking the aforementioned cable subscription, there's NHL GameCenterthrough which you can either watch every regular and postseason NHL matchup for a $200 flat fee, or a quarter of that paid over each fourth of the season.

NHL VPN Conclusion

So now that we've gone over our VPN picks to watch NHL games from outside the United States, let's review.

Every VPN service listed above - and reproduced below for your convenience - has a free trial or money back guarantee. Some have both, so you can sample any VPN with no risk, before subscribing long-term, or even use the temporary registration to stream the tournament and get your money back afterward. If you're looking for a VPN not listed here to use, make sure it has US servers and reputable speed and reliability, lest you're stuck with an unwatchable stream.  For some alternative VPN options, head here, or feel free to browse through our site.
