Selling the NHL Around the World

From Etan Vlessing at The Hollywood Reporter:

TV hockey where there’s no ice?

The National Hockey League clearly believes countries where the game is no winter sport still want its TV product.

The pro league on Monday unveiled a tender process for international media rights to live hockey games to be sold throughout Europe and the hot tropics of the Middle East and Africa.

The NHL said Evolution Media Capital will conduct an open auction for the foreign rights to live NHL games covering the 2011-12 through 2014-15 seasons.

Maybe Gary should worry about selling hockey in the foreign markets of Phoenix and Atlanta.
