Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Stu Hackel of the Red Light,
We contacted ESPN and a spokeswoman sent along this statement: “We can confirm that we have reached an agreement in principle to bring some KHL coverage to fans in the UK (on ESPN) and in the US (on ESPN3). However, details of a deal and specific coverage plans are not yet solidified. We will share more schedule details as soon as possible.”
The spokeswoman added that ESPN hoped the deal would be concluded by the end of the week but confirmed that the Dynamo-Ak Bars game would not be seen, the entire schedule has yet to be determined, and we should disregard the games that the KHL trumpeted on Tuesday.
The KHL’s announcement was, to say the least, a bit premature. The league has yet to respond to our request for comment, so it’s uncertain if this snafu was the result of a miscommunication or some over-eagerness on KHL’s part.
