The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club, in conjunction with broadcast partner TSN, today announced 60 Winnipeg Jets regular season games will be broadcast live this season on TSN3 beginning with the regular season opener Thursday, Oct. 8 at 6:00pm CT at the Boston Bruins.
TSN’s package of regional Winnipeg Jets games is available on TSN3 and on the TSN GO mobile app to TSN subscribers in the Jets’ designated broadcast region, which includes Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, and parts of Northwestern Ontario including Kenora, Dryden, and Thunder Bay.
The TSN broadcast package for this upcoming Jets’ season includes all seven pre-season games and 60 regular season games live on TSN3. The remaining 22 regular season games will be broadcast on CBC, Rogers Sportsnet, and City TV.
The Jets first broadcast on TSN3 will take place live from MTS Centre on September 22, when Winnipeg hosts the Minnesota Wild in the first pre-season contest. The final pre-season game in Calgary on Oct. 3 will be joined in progress at 9:00 p.m. CT but the start of the game will be available on TSN GO online and mobile app. After opening the regular season on the road in Boston, the Jets make their home debut on TSN3 the following week versus the Calgary Flames on October 16 at 7:00pm CT.
This season, all of TSN’s broadcasts will feature the Voice of the Jets, Dennis Beyak, as well as analyst Shane Hnidy. Sara Orlesky once again returns as the host of the Jets on TSN at all home and select road games.
On the radio side, all of the Jets’ 82 regular season games, as well as all seven exhibition games, can be heard live on the radio and online on TSN 1290. Play-by-play calls are handled by Beyak and Paul Edmonds. They are joined by analysts Brian Munz and Hnidy, both of whom have been part of TSN 1290’s Jets coverage since it debuted in 2011.
