Listen To Wayne

VERSUS, the exclusive cable television home of the National Hockey League, will put a microphone on NHL legend and head coach of the Phoenix Coyotes, Wayne Gretzky, during the network’s February 11 telecast of the Phoenix Coyotes/Dallas Stars match-up from the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The game will air on VERSUS at 7 p.m. ET and in HD where available.

“Throughout the season, we always try new production enhancements and are constantly adding elements to our telecasts to get fans more engaged in the game,” said Mike Baker, Coordinating Producer for the NHL on VERSUS. “We are thrilled to be able to offer our viewers an insider’s look at the sport with on-the-bench commentary from the greatest NHL talent as he interacts with his players and coaches throughout the game.”

Also, the Ducks/Wings game yesterday on NBC drew a 0.9 overnight rating.

Celebrating HDIC

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

In terms of length and breadth, Hockey Day in Canada pretty much leads the field.

The CBC’s celebration of the game will be on the air for 13 1/2 hours Saturday and provide content from virtually every region of the country.

Still, most of the programming will consist of NHL game telecasts, which is just as well. A full day of joy and love at the amateur level would be too rich for all but the true believers. The majority of the feel-good stories will be presented during the first three hours, starting at noon EST.

Behind the Scenes Televising the Hurricanes

From Luke Decock at The News & Observer,

The replays Tracy was so happy to see emerged from a whirlwind of organized chaos confined within a trailer parked outside the arena and attached to the building by a spaghetti bowl of cables of every color and thickness.

It was the result of the coordination of a camera operator, one of seven. And a videotape operator, one of four. And an audio engineer and technical director, each switching between 14 camera feeds and five videotape machines.

All of it coordinated and orchestrated by a director and a producer, both of whom had long moved on to other tasks by the time the replay showed up on the air.

The relatively simple act of watching a hockey game on television offers no hint of the complexity behind the operation that plans, produces and puts the game on the air.
