Hockey is back and so is NHL Live, which kicks off another season Monday at 5 p.m. ET from the NHL Powered by Reebok Store in New York City.
NHL training camps are under way, and Steve Mears and EJ Hradek will commence their daily season previews with a look at the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks. NHL Network insider Darren Dreger also joins the show with the latest news from around the League, including the status of unsigned restricted free agents.
The Anaheim Ducks are among the projected top contenders for the Stanley Cup. NHL Live welcomes coach Bruce Boudreau to discuss what's ahead for a recalibrated Ducks team that bulked up at center with the addition of Ryan Kesler.
The New York Rangers are primed for another run to the Stanley Cup Final. Steve Zipay of Newsday will join Steve and E.J. to preview the Rangers' preseason opener against the New Jersey Devils and look ahead to the regular season.
Retired NHL defenseman Phil Bourque will also join the show. Bourque had 88 goals and 199 points in 447 NHL games and twice won the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 and '92.
