VERSUS To Air Special Deadline Edition of Hockey Central
February 23, 2011 1 Comment
It may not be the live extravaganza TSN promises every year, but with the way trades have been happening earlier and earlier this year, VERSUS may have the right move at this year’s trade deadline.
The network will air a one-hour edition of Hockey Central on Deadline Day Monday, February 28th at 7:00 PM ET. Not only will it serve as a lead-in to VERSUS’ broadcast of Chicago/Minnesota, it will presumably recap what the NHL’s 30 teams managed to accomplish before the NHL’s afternoon trade deadline.
This is the first time VERSUS has directed programming towards the trade deadline. TSN typically airs hours upon hours of coverage in Canada, that runs the entire day of the deadline. NHL Network. I don’t have the details of NHL Network’s plans for next Monday, but I anticipate they’ll send out a press release that features at least some simulcasting of the TSN event.
