TSN3 will broadcast 60 Winnipeg Jets regional games this season with the remaining 22 being shown nationally on the Rogers package of channels. Calling the action for TSN will be Dennis Beyak, Shane Hnidy and Sara Orlesky. TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg is the exclusive radio home for all Jets games throughout the season.
The NHL’s trade deadline is tomorrow. While TSN and Sportsnet will compete against each other for viewers, many trades are now broken on Twitter. Even in the past year the popularity of Twitter has increased exponentially. This list should include most who will break trades tomorrow. It is also a good way to avoid Bob McKenzie, James Duthie, Gord Miller, Pierre Lebrun and Nick Kypreos. It is also worth noting that ALL TSN accounts are Twitter verified for this reason. I’ll start with the national broadcasters (TSN, CBC, Sportsnet), then include some other local reporters.

Over the past month Canadian networks have released their 2011-12 NHL TV schedules. The complete TV schedules are now available for all seven Canadian teams. I have compiled all the broadcasts into one Excel file. It includes 7 different pages, one for each team. This way you can easily see where your favourite team’s games will be broadcast each night. I have included English-language schedules for all seven teams, as well as French-language schedules for the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens. If you have any questions, leave a comment. I hope everyone enjoys this feature, because I spent a fair amount of time working on it.
And please, download it, print it, share it with friends, whatever. The only thing I ask is that nobody posts it on their own site, without linking back here as well. Enjoy.
