Rogers, Scotiabank's 6-yr NHL deal; also include new TV shows, digital products

TORONTO - Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B) has signed Scotiabank as its first major NHL sponsor since acquiring exclusive multimedia rights to National Hockey League games beginning this fall. The six-year deal with Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) includes new Sunday night and Wednesday night TV shows carried either by Rogers Sportsnet cable channels or its City television stations. It also anticipates new ways of delivering sport statistics during games through what's been called "the second screen" — network-connected computers, tablets and smartphones — and other online content.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
