2015 IIHF World Championship on TSN Begins Friday

With their additional channels feeds, TSN will be broadcasting more games than ever from the annual Ice Hockey World Championship which begins Friday. Canadians will see 58 games from the tournament, more than double from last year. The broadcast crew is as follows:

TSN’s acclaimed broadcast team of play-by-play commentator Gord Miller and analyst Ray Ferraro call all Team Canada and Group A games from Prague. They are joined by Bryan Mudryk, who delivers rink-side reporting throughout the tournament, and former Swiss Team National coach Sean Simpson, who will provide colour commentary for select Group A games. Play-by-play commentator Dennis Beyak and analyst Shane Hnidy call Group B games from the broadcast booth in Ostrava.

Hosting the network’s coverage from the TSN Studio is Rod Black. He is joined throughout the tournament by analysts Bob Errey and Dave Reid and TSN’s Director of Scouting Craig Button.

  1. Why NHL doesn’t invite all these countries for the 2016 world cup (from every division)? I have a feeling that IIHF competitions are still going to be better than the world cup.

    How does hosting the hockey world championship works?

  2. I always enjoy the IIHF worlds. A more entertaining and certainly much more competitive tournament than the IIHF world juniors which most other people in Canada seem to go nuts for.

  3. Good that Miller and Ferraro are calling the Worlds, they’re no strangers to international hockey, and they know the NHL guys well. As for hosting the Worlds, it’s a bidding process, same as World Cup soccer, Olympics, Super Bowl and other big-time events.

  4. Really is an unreal commitment by TSN to broadcast all these games. I mean France v Lativa, Norway v Belarus even getting televised.

What do you think?
