NHL TV CONTRACT NOT SO LUCRATIVE

SHARE NHL TV CONTRACT NOT SO LUCRATIVE

After months of negotiations and just hours before the opening games, the NHL announced it had extended its contract with SportsChannel America for one year.

The pact called for SCA to pay the NHL $5.5 million for exclusive coverage of its regular season and playoff games.The contract figure was roughly one-third of what the NHL was paid in each of the last three seasons by SCA and clearly a disappointment to the league.
