NEW YORK (Dec. 27, 2011) – The National Hockey League (NHL®) and NHL

Original Productions today announced Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron

as the next NHL player to be profiled in the all-access series NHL 36.


“Patrice has won a Stanley Cup, plus a gold medal at the Olympics, at

the World Championship and at the World Junior Championship,” said Ross

Greenburg, executive producer, NHL 36. “He is one of the League’s most

under-rated superstars.”


NHL Original Productions cameras joined the Bruins’ alternate captain

at 7:30 a.m., ET, today and will follow him for 36 hours as Bergeron

participates in team practices, flies with teammates to Arizona and

prepares for Boston’s game against the Phoenix Coyotes.


NHL 36: Patrice Bergeron will air Wednesday, Jan. 4, at 6:30 p.m. on

NBC Sports Network (formerly VERSUS). Narration is provided by actor and

Emmy Award winner Peter Coyote. The original score is the creation of

accomplished composer Ferdinand J. Smith. The show will be followed on NBC

Sports Network by NHL LIVE at 7:00 p.m. ET, and the Bruins’ game in New

Jersey against the Devils at 7:30.


NHL 36: Patrice Bergeron will re-air on the NBC Sports Network on

Friday, Jan. 6 at 9 a.m. and Sunday, Jan. 8 at 1 a.m. It also will air in

the United States and Canada on NHL Network™ on Saturday, Jan. 7 at 12:30

p.m. ET and Sunday, Jan. 8 at 6:30 p.m. ET.


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.
