I know a lot of you have speculated on this over the summer, now we have our answer. Bruce Dowbiggin reports:
In fact, Pilling said that, with the addition of a seventh Canadian team in Winnipeg, HNIC is adding a fifth broadcast crew. “We’ll have some announcements coming up about crews for the additional games and replacements for departed staff,” Pilling told Usual Suspects on Tuesday. For purposes of doubleheaders, Winnipeg will be considered for the first half of the bill (a 6 p.m. CT start).
“When we get to later in the season and teams are out of the running, we will adjust which teams get national exposure and which get regional coverage only,” Pilling said. “For now we’re very happy with the distribution of games that we have.”
