Alright; here it is. If you’re like me you’ve waited for the NHL broadcast schedules for the past seven days while the CBA went through the ratification process. Even crazier than the time playoff TV schedules used to come out is the NHL on TSN schedule coming out just before midnight on a Saturday night.

TSN will broadcast 42 games featuring Canadian teams this season (NBC simulcasts will be announced later this week). Coverage includes four all-Canadian matchups and five Original Six matchups. The Leafs lead the way with ten broadcasts, while the Canadiens have nine. The Jets have three, while the other four Canadians teams have six a piece. The Kings and Penguins appear the most among American teams, with four games each.

TSN’s broadcast team remains unchanged from last season. Gord Miller and Chris Cuthbert return to the broadcast booth, while Mike Johnson and Ray Ferraro return between the benches. TSN’s studio show features James Duthie, Bob McKenzie, Darren Dreger, Aaron Ward and Pierre Lebrun, if you haven’t already figured that out during the constant NHL on TSN studio specials during the past week.

Also of note, the 2013 NHL Draft will take place on Sunday June 30, with all seven rounds on the same day. It will start in the afternoon. If over a million people watch a hockey draft on a summer Sunday afternoon…

Here is the 2013 NHL on TSN broadcast schedule in PDF format, because I don’t have time to type it out. And here is TSN’s full press release, for those interested.
