NHL’s Bevy of Platforms Will Be in Use on Deadline Day

NEW YORK (February 25, 2011) – The countdown is on to the NHL’s 2011 Trade Deadline and after a flurry of activity over the past two weeks, a number of players already have new NHL® addresses. As teams stock up for their push to the playoffs, NHL Network™, NHL.com and NHL Radio™ will provide special programming throughout the day on Monday, Feb. 28, to report and analyze all of the deals that beat the 3:00 p.m. ET trade deadline.


On Monday, NHL Network will produce hours of original Trade Deadline programming across its U.S. and Canada Network. The puck will drop on 18 hours of live coverage on NHL Network beginning at 8 a.m. ET, with a simulcast of TSN’s TRADECENTRE ’11 broadcast for U.S. viewers. TSN host James Duthie leads TSN’s TRADECENTRE ’11 team of hockey analysts, insiders, former NHL players, coaches and general managers, reporters and correspondents – providing breaking news and instant analysis of each transaction.


The NHL’s daily signature radio show, NHL Live!, will be hosting a special four-hour Trade Show from noon – 4 p.m. ET. The show will be broadcast on Sirius XM radio, simulcast on NHL Network in Canada and streamed live on NHL.com. Hosts Don LaGreca, EJ Hradek and Rob Simpson will bring views up-to-speed on all the day’s trade action and will be speaking with players, Club management and insiders who can offer their breakdowns.


Beginning at 6 p.m., fans across North America will be offered unique access and information on NHL Network 2011 Trade Deadline Day Presented by Honda™, a two-hour show that will discuss and analyze all of the major transactions and how they impact the playoff races. OTF hosts David Amber and Brian Duff will be joined by a panel of analysts — Kevin Weekes, Jeremy Roenick, Craig Button, Mike Johnson — and NHL Insiders and TSN’s own Darren Dreger and Bob McKenzie for a breakdown of all the latest news.


NHL Network’s daily flagship show, On the Fly™ begins their special Trade Deadline coverage at 8 p.m. The show will run through the end of the Detroit at Los Angeles game including live intermission reports. This season, all in HD, NHL Network broadcasts over 75 live games in the U.S. and 35 in Canada featuring the best productions in the NHL with games throughout the regular season.


Also for NHL Network viewers in the United States, hourly update reports will begin at 9 a.m. and run through 2 p.m. from the NHL Live!™ radio studio in New York City. Further, NHL Network will provide hourly reports from the On The Fly team from 2 p.m. – 4p.m. from its studio in Toronto.


NHL.com will provide extensive coverage throughout the weekend and on trade day with reporting by top writers and correspondents on the scene where the action is taking place in various NHL markets. Fans can follow NHL.com’s up-to-the-minute trade tracker by linking on http://www.nhl.com/tradetracker. NHL.com’s video player already is loaded with in-depth stories and videos from the players traded in the past days and writers will have running commentary and an in-depth look at the impact of trades once the deadline has passed.


The Blackberry All-Access Show, the NHL’s daily video newscast, will have special Trade Deadline features and programming on Monday. John Giannone and Billy Jaffe will tell viewers who the buyers and sellers are while updating fans throughout the day with live reports.
