Hockey Gets Its Own Day on NBC

As if we needed more proof that the NHL is getting bigger, NBC will air Hockey Day in America on February 20. The six-hour broadcast is part of the fourth-annual Hockey Weekend Across America, which we bet you didn’t know about until just now.

According to a release, “The day-long event will celebrate hockey with a slate of NHL games that are scheduled to include Philadelphia, New York Rangers, Washington, Buffalo, Detroit, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Boston.”

The commentators and the site are still TBD.
