NHL Net to Cover the Awards Show

NEW YORK (June 20, 2011) – NHL Network™ and NHL.com will provide

comprehensive coverage of the season’s final event this week when NHL®

stars gather in Las Vegas for the 2011 NHL Awards. NHL Network will carry

four hours of live programming on Wednesday, June 22, while NHL.com will

deploy a team of writers and videographers to cover the event and each

Award winner.

 

NHL Network’s Awards coverage begins with a one-hour NHL Live™ at

4:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday. The show, streamed live on NHL.com, will

broadcast from its Manhattan studio with NHL Insider EJ Hradek and Bill

Pidto, host of NHL Overtime on VERSUS. NHL Live will preview all of the

Award finalists and make predictions about who is going to walk away with

this year’s hardware. The interactive show, which incorporates fans’ voices

from a social media and phone call perspective will also have live

interviews from the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas as preparations for

the 2011 Awards show gets underway.

 

Following NHL Live, a two-hour program — 2011 NHL Network Awards Red

Carpet Presented by Geico — originating from the Awards venue, will take

to the airwaves at 5:00 p.m. ET. NHL Live™ host Deb Placey, NHL On The

Fly™ regular Kevin Weekes and former NHLer Jeremy Roenick will anchor the

pre-Awards coverage from the red carpet and set location inside the theatre

as award finalists and their families walk the carpet, sign autographs and

make their way into the auditorium. They will have a complete review of

the finalists and highlight the plays, saves and off-ice contributions to

their communities that make each player a contender for these accolades.

 

Reporters Michelle Beisner and Heidi Androl will be on hand to

interview finalists and fans, get their award predictions and, of course,

report on all of the red carpet style and fashion.

 

The 2011 NHL Awards Show will be broadcast live on VERSUS in the

United States and CBC in Canada beginning at 7 p.m. ET. Immediately

following on NHL Network, the 2011 NHL Awards Recap Show Presented by Geico

will have player interviews, entertainment acts and a sneak peek into the

post-event celebration at the Palms Hotel and Casino.

 

NHL.com’s on-site coverage will top off a month-long campaign of

Awards predictions and behind-the-scenes footage — including a private

video shoot with Carolina Hurricane and Calder Trophy finalist Jeff Skinner

and interviews with musical guests. Day-of features include video from the

players’ green room, backstage access and live streaming of the 2011 NHL

Network Awards Red Carpet Presented by Geico. Fans can follow the event

via live blog, tweets and breaking news ticker on NHL.com’s dedicated

Awards microsite.
