The Colorado Avalanche will appear on national television at least 17 times during the 2007-08 campaign, beginning with the club’s regular season home opener against Dallas.
The Avalanche will make eight appearances on VERSUS, tied for the most of any team in the National Hockey League and three appearances on CBC, including a Feb. 9 contest against the Vancouver Canucks during CBC’s annual Hockey Day in Canada.
A total of eight Avalanche games will be broadcast on the NHL on TSN, including a pair of meetings with both the Edmonton Oilers (Oct. 23 and Nov. 7) and Vancouver (Feb. 27 and March 26).
In addition, the Avalanche may appear on The NHL on NBC’s “Game of the Week” in a match-up against the Chicago Blackhawks on Feb. 17 under the NHL’s new flexible scheduling option for NBC’s nine regular season dates. Thirteen days prior to the scheduled games, NBC, in conjunction with the NHL, will select one of up to four games as the “Game of the Week”.
