The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Wednesday their television broadcast schedule for the 2010-11 season. All 82 games will be broadcast live among four networks: Leafs TV, Rogers Sportsnet, TSN and CBC. In addition, all nine preseason games will be shown live on television, with six of those games on Leafs TV.
Every Leafs’ game will also be on the radio - live on ‘The Home of the Leafs’ AM 640 - from the start of the preseason to the conclusion of the season.
“AM 640, CBC, TSN and Rogers Sportsnet are all terrific broadcast partners that are committed to delivering outstanding hockey coverage to Leafs fans,” said Tom Anselmi, executive vice-president and chief operating officer, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. “All of our broadcast networks including Leafs TV will form an excellent partnership to bring every single Leafs game to our fans once again in 2010-11.”
There will be 12 regular season games in 2010-11 carried exclusively on Leafs TV. The Leafs will also appear 29 times on Rogers Sportsnet, 24 times on CBC, and 17 times on TSN.
The hockey club’s preseason schedule begins against the Ottawa Senators at Air Canada Centre September 21 in the Coca-Cola Zero® Fans First Game. Rogers Sportsnet Ontario and AM 640 will broadcast that game exclusively. Regular season action starts October 7 as the Leafs will host Montreal on CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada.
