We are always trying to improve the coverage by bringing added value to hockey fans in the UK. This year with the addition of the NHL European Game of the Week at prime UK time and full coverage including intermissions on at least 50% of games it promises to be the best year yet for fans in the UK. We are looking forward to showcasing another 500 games this season from the best ice hockey league in the world, beginning with Boston Bruins at reigning Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals live on Premier Sports 1.”

“For the first time ever, the NHL European Game of the Week creates a destination viewing experience for NHL fans in the UK watching on Premier Sports,” said NHL Executive Vice President of Media & International Strategy David Proper. “Fans in the UK will be able to watch live NHL action featuring the world’s best hockey players during a consistent primetime window throughout the 2018-19 regular season on Premier Sports.
