Another Hall Of Fame Induction For Gary Bettman

from NHL.com,

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame on Tuesday to celebrate his more than a quarter-century of raising the game's profile on television and for the pioneering work the League has done under his leadership.

"This (honor) is a testament to progress and innovations our game has made and on my 26-year journey with and through the broadcast industry -- it is really about the people I've met along the way," Commissioner Bettman said in his induction speech.

Commissioner Bettman pointed to the 10-year broadcasting and media rights deal the NHL signed with NBC on April 19, 2011 as a big step for the League.
