NHL Network releases its 2010-11 regular season TV schedule

Oct 4, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

Beginning this Saturday (October 9), NHL Network will televise 78 NHL regular season games, all of which in HD according to the Network. The schedule will include three “flex” games so the network can choose the contests with the greatest playoff implications late in the year.

There are a few games that stand out according to the network’s press release. The Saturday slate includes the Columbus Blue Jackets-San Jose Sharks game in Stockholm, Sweden and then moves on to the Chicago Blackhawks raising their Stanley Cup banner at the United Center during a match against the Detroit Red Wings. They will also televise Mike Modano’s first appearance in Dallas as a Red Wing (October 14), Dany Heatley’s return to Ottawa (December 2) and the Hurricanes ceremony to retired Rod Brind’amour’s number (February 18).

    12 home games and 20 overall games for the Leafs?
    They remind me of the Dallas Cowboys – a team that has a popular following but are overrated trash every single year.
    This schedule reads like the NBC schedule, with the addition of Toronto. WE WANT TO SEE EVERY TEAM IN THE LEAGUE!

    Broadcasters are in the business of selling marketing to the largest number of viewers. Toronto has the biggest following of any of the 30 NHL team in and outside of Canada – Live with it !!

      I’m a Leafs fan, yes, but on the basis of pure logic, I have to agree with Frank. The Leafs, like the Yankees and Red Sox in the US, have tremendous followings, even outside of their home countries. People hate that the Yankees get so much television coverage – but its indisputable that World Series, and even regular season games featuring the Yanks have the highest ratings for MLB. The Leafs are in the same category of popularity for the NHL. As a die hard Leafs fan now living in Chicago, I am happy to see 20 games featuring the bue and wite – and that too, broadcast via the incomparable Hockey Night in Canada.

    The Leafs have so many games because NHL Network simulcasts Hockey Night in Canada from CBC for Americans.
