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.
