Saturday night will remain Hockey Night in Canada on CBC.
The NHL confirmed Tuesday that the CBC has secured English-language rights to games in a sub-licensing agreement with Rogers Communications.
The 12-year, $5.232 billion deal through 2025-26 between the NHL and Rogers is the largest media rights agreement in league history and subject to approval by the league's board of governors at a meeting in in Pebble Beach, Calif., on Dec. 9-10.
I can't think of a reason why this won't be approved. It's a shame NBC doesn't follow the lead of the CBC and make the same kind of commitment to broadcast more games on their free main television network.
