NHL Network across North America is teaming with TSN to bring NHL fans extensive coverage of NHL Trade Deadline Day. Hockey fans in the U.S. and Canada can keep tabs on all their favorite teams and players as NHL Network simulcasts TSN’s 10-hour program, TradeCentre 08, on Tuesday, Feb. 26 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET.
The wall-to-wall coverage includes a team of 20 Insiders, analysts, former NHL players, coaches and general managers, reporters and correspondents providing breaking news and instant analysis of each transaction, including interviews with players, coaches and GMs.
James Duthie hosts the event coverage from the NHL on TSN studio, while Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger, along with Gord Miller, are dialed in at the ‘Trade Breaker’ desk to bring fans the most up-to-date information on NHL trades. Analysts Pierre McGuire and Mike Milbury are joined by guest analyst John Ferguson and Darren Pang on the ‘Instant Analysis’ panel, where they will break down each transaction and declare the day’s winners and losers. Contributor Matthew Barnaby will also be in-studio to comment on the day’s trades. Analyst Glenn Healy (in Boston) and contributors Keith Jones (in Stamford, CT) and Ed Olczyk (in Chicago) will join the panel via satellite with additional analysis.
Milbury, a former general manager with the New York Islanders, will also team up with Ferguson, former GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs, in the ‘GM’s Corner’ to provide front-office insight. Duthie will gather reaction from NHL team news conferences and conduct live interviews with players, coaches and GMs from around the league, including Anaheim Ducks GM Brian Burke and Detroit Red Wings GM Ken Holland.
NHL Network will summarize all the action from NHL Trade Deadline Day on NHL On The Fly at 9 p.m. ET and NHL On the Fly: Final at 12 midnight ET, featuring former Calgary Flames GM Craig Button with host Dan Pollard.
