The NHL announced its national television schedule for the 2011-12 season Thursday and the Blackhawks are slated to appear in 13 games on either NBC or Versus.
In what Commissioner Gary Bettman is calling the most significant deal in league history, the NHL agreed to a contract that will keep them on NBC and Versus for the next 10 years.
Last season’s Stanley Cup Finals were great for the Chicago Blackhawks and their fans. It was equally as good for the NHL. The Cup Finals were one of the highest rated in NHL history, and thanks to that the league is optimistic for new TV deals.
