In the studio, John Giannone and Steve Valiquette will host the pre-, intermission and post-game coverage. Henrik Lundqvist will also work the studio for select games.

NHL Power Play on ESPN+

More than 1,050 out-of-market live games will be available on the subscription platform, newly named “NHL Power Play on ESPN+” – these were the games that were presented on cable TV through the old NHL Center Ice subscriptions.

A new twist is each game will have the home and road telecasts, plus the Saturday Hockey Night in Canada telecast feed. All telecasts will also be available for replays.

NHL Network

The cable channel will often be the spillover channel when games go into overtime and the second game has to start on time.

Like the other major sports channels, NHL Network will present “NHL Tonight,’’ with highlights and live look-ins to evening games in progress. Often, the network will pick up the third period of late NHL games at 11 p.m or midnight before returning to studio shows. When hockey action is concluded, the network will present the half-hour highlights show “On the Fly” and re-run them through the subsequent morning. The network will then present 1- and 2-hour replays of games the following afternoon.

On Saturday nights, NHL Network will air “Hockey Central” at 6:30 p.m., the pregame show for “Hockey Night in Canada” though the U.S. audience may not always get the subsequent HNIC telecast.

Sirius XM Radio

Satellite radio Sirius XM provides live coverage of every NHL game, providing home broadcasts on channels 219-223. The service will also put games on the NHL channel 91 and on some Canadian-based channels, like 167.
