It's a big week coming up for potential inductees to the Hockey Hall of Fame and free agents waiting for the July 1 signing period to start, and NHL Network is once again the place to tune in for all your coverage of these exciting events.
In the U.S., NHL Network will carry the Hockey Hall of Fame inductee announcement live Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET. The program will be rebroadcast twice later in the evening beginning at 8 p.m., and again the following morning beginning at 11 a.m. Beginning at 3:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, NHL Network will broadcast a special two-and-half-hour NHL Live show to discuss and analyze the Hall of Fame inductees, plus cover the latest free-agent news. From 6 to 8 p.m., NHL On The Fly picks up those topics on Tuesday.
Free agency begins at noon on Friday, and NHL Network-U.S. will have five full hours of coverage, the "Free Agent Frenzy" beginning at 12 p.m., followed by a one-hour edition of NHL Live at 5 p.m. on NHL Network-U.S. and NHL Network Canada. Following that, there will be a two-hour live edition of NHL On The Fly at 6 p.m. to wrap up the day's free-agent signings and look ahead to what's next for teams and free agents.
Each day this week, NHL Live will eature special free-agency segments each day leading up to the "Free Agent Frenzy." Top players at each position will be highlighted: goaltenders on Monday; defensemen on Tuesday; and forwards on Wednesday. "Hidden Gems" will be featured on Thursday's show.
