While NBC Sports Network will likely be giving a general look at the NHL Trade Deadline on NBC Sports Talk and their coverage of Devils-Rangers later tonight, the Worldwide Leader may beat them to the punch.
ESPN.com will produce it’s own Trade Deadline show to wrap-up the day’s action. A source told me that the show will be taped around 5 p.m. ET, air in it’s entirety at some point on ESPN.com, and segments may be featured on ESPNews and SportsCenter.
The segments will be hosted by John Buccigross, with ESPN.com writers Scott Burnside, Pierre LeBrun and Katie Strang contributing alongside analyst Barry Melrose.
NHL Network will be producing a wrap-up show that will air in both the United States and Canada from their studios in Toronto at 6 p.m. ET, however, with NHL Network simulcasting TSN, ESPN’s coverage will be the only trade deadline-specific coverage produced in the United States.
