TORONTO – Coming off its blanket coverage of the recent NHL General Managers meeting in Florida, the NHL's signature daily radio show is on the road again this week on Thursday and Friday. NHL Live! ™ heads to Las Vegas for two days of special programming from The Wayne Gretzky Fantasy Camp at the Bellagio®, the National Hockey league announced today.
Daily appearances by The Great One, himself, will highlight the live coverage from Las Vegas that will be hosted by E.J. Hradek and Craig Button. NHL Live!, which is broadcast on Sirius XM Radio, streams on NHL.com and is simulcast on NHL Network, will air both days at its regular time – noon-2 p.m. ET (9-11 a.m. PT).
In addition to the event's host, Wayne Gretzky, an impressive collection of NHL stars is scheduled to appear over the course of the show's two-day Vegas run. Hockey Hall of Famers Luc Robitaille, Larry Robinson, Brian Leetch, Grant Fuhr and Denis Savard and Stanley Cup-winning coach Mike Keenan are among the hockey luminaries expected to drop by and chat with Craig and E.J.
Wayne Gretzky Fantasy Camp VIII is scheduled to start today and run through March 29. Gretzky, along with former NHL stars, Hockey Hall of Famers and fans of the game will compete for the Gretzky Cup. The Camp, which gives fans the opportunity to live out their hockey dreams, will feature a number of off-ice events plus the chance to mingle with sports celebrities.
