This week TSN and Sportsnet are releasing regional NHL TV schedules for the upcoming season. TSN also released its national slate yesterday. I will post links to all of the schedules, as well as the press releases.

All of Sportsnet’s 23 regular season Maple Leafs telecasts will air on Sportsnet Ontario and will feature veteran play-by-play announcer Joe Bowen, analyst and former NHLer Greg Millen and host Paul HendrickHOCKEY CENTRAL will preview every game with a half-hour pre-game show, and will also provide intermission and post-game analysis.

 

Highlights from Sportsnet’s Toronto Maple Leafs regular season TV broadcast schedule include:

Sportsnet Ontario released its 2013 Maple Leafs broadcast schedule today. Sportsnet is slated to show 14 Leafs games in Ontario. CBC and TSN will combine to show 24. That leaves 10 Leafs games unaccounted for. It is still unknown whether those will air on Leafs TV, or possibly Sportsnet and/or TSN (or some combination). The latter is a possibility though. What happens with those other ten Leafs games is probably the most interesting aspect of this season’s TV schedules.

Joe Bowen and Greg Millen return to the broadcast booth on both networks, with Paul Hendrick reporting rinkside. Sportsnet will also have 30 minute pregame shows with Hockey Central.
