NHL Network Adds 20 American Hockey League Games to Schedule

The NHL Network has inked a one-year extension for broadcast rights to American Hockey League games. Under the deal, the outlet will broadcast 20 “Game of the Week” matchups during the season.

The games will air weekly at 7 p.m. ET on Thursdays, beginning Nov. 15 as Rochester takes on Syracuse.

The AHL has affiliations with all 30 NHL teams as the National Hockey league’s top developmental organization.

After airing 12 AHL games last season, the new 20-game package marks the most AHL games ever televised on NHL Network.

NHL Network, which now claims access to more than 80 million homes, has televised AHL games in Canada since the 2004-05 season.

Highlights of NHL Network’s AHL broadcast schedule include four games featuring the Portland Pirates, top affiliate of the Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks. Twenty-four members of last year’s Ducks team were graduates of the AHL, including right wing Corey Perry, center Ryan Getzlaf and goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere.
