Not all 30 NHL teams voted for realignment, but according to commissioner Gary Bettman, the plan’s approval rate was “well in excess” of the three-quarters that was required.

Here's how the realignment map looks:

Right now they are referring to the Orange grouping as Division A, the Yellow as Division B, the Blue as Division C and the Green as Division D. Many are pushing to give each Division a name that has historical significance so my suggestion would be to call Division A the Gretzky Division, Division B the Hull Division, Division C the Orr Division and Division D the Clarke Division. If Mario wasn't part of the Penguins ownership group then I would call Division D the Lemieux Division.
