The Los Angeles Kings will broadcast three contests between Anaheim and Los Angeles at Staples Center, bringing the total number of Ducks games airing on PRIME TICKET and FS West to 63. Ducks broadcast partner KDOC-TV HD will televise 17 games. Additionally, the club’s contest at Boston on Dec. 20 (4:30 p.m.) will air nationally on VERSUS. The only game the Ducks will not televise in 2010-11 is the club’s contest on Dec. 21 at Buffalo (4:30 p.m.), due to a mandatory blackout window during another VERSUS telecast.
“We are very pleased to be able to televise every game available to us this season,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/COO Tim Ryan. “We want to especially thank our two terrific television partners in PRIME TICKET/FS West and KDOC for making this happen.”
John Ahlers returns as the Ducks television play-by-play voice, having called 466 regular season games since joining the club in 2002. An original member of the team (1993-94), Brian Hayward returns for his 18th year with the Ducks, having called 954 regular season games over that span.
