With the NHL lockout in full effect, OTTAWA SENATORS flagship BELL MEDIA RADIO Sports CFGO-A (TEAM 1200)/OTTAWA is turning to the NHL team's AHL minor league affiliate in BINGHAMTON for hockey play-by-play action.
TEAM 1200 will join the BINGHAMTON SENATORS Broadcast Network, headed by CLEAR CHANNEL Classic Hits WBBI (BIG 107.5)/BINGHAMTON, to air GRADY WHITTENBURG's play-by-play of the B-SENS starting TONIGHT (10/5) with the pre-season game at the HERSHEY BEARS. The move is the third time TEAM 1200 has carried B-SENS games, the first time being during the full-season NHL lockout of 2004-05 and the second being the B-SENS' CALDER CUP final series in 2010-11.
TEAM 1200 is scheduled to carry six of the B-SENS' first seven regular season games, with the NHL having canceled the first two weeks of the NHL regular season. Additional dates are contingent on the status of the NHL labor situation.
