Versus is jumping on board with the renewed interest in hockey, expanding coverage and generally putting in a good shift.

The Comcast outlet, however, is seeing some changes now that the NBC brass are involved. The latest: No. 2 play-by-play man Joe Beninati is out.

The news sparked anger in the Washington D.C. area, but Beninati will remain Washington Capitals play-by-play man on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.

Mike Emrick remains the network’s No. 1 choice, while “inside the glass” reporter Pierre McGuire will join Versus’ coverage from the Peacock.
