The National Hockey League announced last week that their flagship station, NHL Network, will air 22 pre-season games to get fans ready for the upcoming 2013-14 season.
With the exception of NO Islanders coverage on the NHL TV schedule, at least hockey die-hards that have been suffering through a summer of stagnant news can get their fix. The Vancouver Canucks lead the way with 6 games being broadcast.
With teams beginning training camps this week all around the league and the first official exhibition game on September 14, viewers can hold their own training camp of sorts.
None of the games are original productions from the network themselves so viewers will be treated to feeds mostly from regional sports networks.
NBC Sports Network has been strangely silent on their pre-season preparations so we will have to wait and see if more games are added to the slate as time progresses.
