Hey Community, 


As the biggest stars of the NHL hit the ice for the opening puck drop, Sportsnet will be rinkside to deliver exclusive national English-language coverage of the 2018-19 NHL season, beginning Wednesday, Oct. 3.


As Canada’s Home of Hockey, the opening week of Sportsnet’s national NHL broadcast schedule features 11 must-see national matchups with all seven Canadian teams in action. Returning for another season, Sportsnet’s marquee nights – Hockey Night in Canada, Scotiabank Wednesday Night Hockey and Rogers™ Hometown Hockey™ – also get underway this week and will continue to headline Sportsnet’s regular season coverage.


Some new and returning faces anchor Sportsnet’s hockey coverage this season with Jeff Marek joining Scotiabank Wednesday Night Hockey as host and Caroline Cameron taking on the hosting role for Hockey Central Tonight. Marek will also share hosting duties with David Amber on Hockey Central at Noon while Brian Burke joins Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday nights and the Scotiabank Wednesday Night Hockey panel.


Adding to its NHL lineup, Sportsnet is also launching the inaugural season of Sportsnet #IceSurfing on Twitter, beginning Tuesday, Oct. 9. Hosted by Marek alongside analyst Jason York and Steve Dangle, who will be monitoring and interacting with the show’s audience on the social platform, Sportsnet #IceSurfing provides fans with a new way to watch the sport they love. Set to stream weekly on Sportsnet’s Twitter account, #IceSurfing follows all the excitement by jumping from game to game to show highlights, provide up-to-the-minute analysis and share immediate reactions of all the evening’s biggest plays.
