NHL 36: Mike Richards Premieres Next Wednesday

NEW YORK (Feb. 15, 2012) – The National Hockey League (NHL®) and NHL Original Productions today announced Los Angeles Kings center Mike Richards as the next NHL player to be profiled in the all-access series NHL 36. NHL Original Productions cameras joined Richards today and will follow him for the next 36 hours as he and the Kings, in a pitched battle for playoff position with Phoenix, prepare and face the Coyotes in the dreaded “first home game back from a long road trip” this Thursday night.

Richards, in his first season with the Kings, has had to adjust from being a team captain on the East Coast, to life in the Western Conference. The former All-Star brings with him extensive playoff experience to a team that is currently battling tooth-and-nail to reach the post-season. A proven scorer, Richards is looking to boost his offense in the second half of the season to help bring his new team into the playoffs.

NHL 36: Mike Richards will air Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 6:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Network. Later that evening, NBC Sports Network will air the Kings’ game featuring Mike Richards in Colorado against the Avalanche at 9:00 p.m. ET.

NHL 36: Mike Richards will re-air on the NBC Sports Network on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 8 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7 p.m., Friday, Mar. 2 at 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, Mar. 3 at 7:30 p.m. It also will air in the United States and Canada on NHL Network™ on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 5:30 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 26 at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., Saturday, Mar. 3 at 2 p.m. and Sunday, Mar. 4 at 2:30 p.m.

NHL Original Productions is the latest collaboration between the NHL and renowned executive producer Ross Greenburg – an alliance that produced two critically-acclaimed programs on HBO: Broad Street Bullies and the Emmy Award-winning 24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic®. Throughout the year, NHL Original Productions will develop long- and short-form hockey programming for use by the League’s media platforms (NHL Network and NHL.com) as well as national and regional rights-holders.
