TSN Draws an Absurd 1.5 Million Viewers For the Fantasy Draft

Let it never be questioned how much Canadian’s love some of hockey’s biggest events, as they tuned in en masse to see the first ever NHL All-Star Fantasy Daft.
The Friday night primetime broadcast averaged 1.5 million viewers from 8:00-9:30PM ET. Considering the network is averaging only 864,000 viewers per game during the regular season, these numbers have to be beyond even the network’s most optimistic expectations.
To put that into perspective, Hockey Night in Canada is averaging 1.5 million viewers to date this season for regular season games, with only 1.0 million for the late (10:00 PM ET) game. The game will likely come close to the audience drawn by the actual All-Star Game.
