After two seasons that changed the way fans see the National Hockey League and its players, NHL COO John Collins confirmed that there will be a Season 3 for “HBO 24/7: Road To The NHL Winter Classic” featuring the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
“We’re bringing it back,” Collins told Puck Daddy exclusively on Tuesday, although he said a formal announcement is forthcoming.
There was no guarantee “24/7” would come back for a third season, after a change at the top at HBO Sports. The Associated Press speculated in January that HBO could “decide to keep the show, and possibly expand it from its four-week run, or move in a different direction.”
Collins said there are going to be two significant changes for next season’s production, beginning with the fact the NHL will be more involved behind the scenes.
