Tonight marks the debut of NHL Overtime on Versus, an hour-long live hockey show. Airing Monday-Thursday, NHL Overtime will feature game highlights, recaps and expert analysis ranging from the NHL to the minor leagues.
“This season we have more NHL coverage than ever before and adding a nightly show provides an additional platform for the network to super-serve hockey fans the way only Versus can,” said Marc Fein, Executive Vice President of Programming, Production and Business Operations for Versus. “This is also a natural evolution in our relationship with the NHL, which has continued to reach new milestones each season.”
Each week, new announcers and analysts will be featured on the program and Bill Patrick will host.
Between this and the NHL Network, the days of getting your hockey highlights on a semi-regular basis from Barry Melrose on ESPN are long over.
