NHL Draft Coverage Up on VERSUS
June 28, 2011 6 Comments
Friday’s 2011 NHL Draft, while still very much a cult event, showed improvement on VERSUS much like the NHL Awards on Wednesday did.
The network drew 246,000 viewers for the annual player selection meetings, which for the third year rested on Friday in primetime. This was up 22% from last year’s Draft, which scored 201,000 viewers.
The NHL Draft and NHL Awards averaged 262,000 viewers on the network last week. This was up 23% from the 203,000 the two events averaged last year.
