Minnesota is scheduled to make four appearances on the league’s Canadian cable partners, appearing three times on TSN and once on CBC. The Wild’s local television schedule will be announced next month.
VERSUS and NBC return for a third year as the NHL’s national television partners. In Canada, CBC begins its 55th consecutive year of NHL broadcast coverage while TSN – which began covering the NHL in 1985 – is once again the national cable partner.
The NBC NHL “Game of the Week” drops the puck on Sunday, Jan. 20 with an exciting new twist to ensure fans are provided with the most exciting match-up available: the NHL will offer flexible scheduling for NBC's nine regular-season dates. NBC will select from up to four games on Sunday afternoons. Thirteen days prior to the scheduled games a game will be selected for broadcast on NBC. All NBC regular-season games will be broadcast on Sundays for the first time and all games will be presented in High Definition. NBC will again broadcast the postseason, including Games 3-7 of the Stanley Cup Final in prime time.
Most Twin Cities cable and satellite providers, including Comcast, offer VERSUS. Viewers can also contact their local cable providers for more information on VERSUS in their area.
