SIRIUSXM and SIRIUSXM CANADA have extended their multi-year deal to air NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE games through the 2021-22 season. The games and SIRIUSXM NHL NETWORK RADIO will be available to subscribers on all SIRIUS and XM receivers in the companies' most widely distributed programming package.
"Our long-standing partnership with SIRIUSXM has always been focused on making the game accessible to fans," said NHL COO JOHN COLLINS. "Our expanded partnership will ensure we can continue to deliver fans across NORTH AMERICA more programming and more games – from pre-season puck drop to the final buzzer – for years to come."
"We look forward to working with the NHL to bring our listeners across NORTH AMERICA the ultimate hockey experience through our coverage," said SIRIUSXM CANADA Pres./CEO MARK REDMOND. "We are excited that the NHL will now be co-producing SIRIUSXM NHL RADIO with us, which will result in even better programming than what our listeners have grown to love. The exclusive NHL content, along with easy access to full-time NHL coverage and live game play-by-play, is an offering that hockey fans can't get anywhere else."
