The following is a list of current National Hockey League franchise owners.

All of the NHL's teams use some form of holding company for the team's assets, sometimes through multiple layers of corporations, which are all listed in the "Operating Entities" column. The "Principal Owner(s)" column lists the team's representative on the NHL's Board of Governors; usually this is the majority or plurality owner of the team or, in the case of teams held by publicly held corporations, the corporation's chairman.
