Puck the Media Christmas, Or the NHL’s 2011-12 National TV Schedule, Will Be This Thursday

As confirmed to Puck the Media by an NHL spokesman, the league and it’s television partners will release their slate of games – including Hockey Night in Canada, TSN, and over 100 games from the NBC Sports Group – this Thursday at 2 p.m. ET. Join me for coverage, tons of opinion, and the answers to questions such as: What is up with the Winter Classic? What about the Jets? What will VERSUS/NBCSN’s new hockey night to complement it’s Monday/Tuesday slate be? Will it still be Monday/Tuesday?

All this and more in about 46 hours.
