PhoenixCoyotesCelebrateThe Phoenix Coyotes have secured a one-year over-the-air (OTA) television broadcast agreement with 3TV and their sister station CW6.

As a part of the deal, 3TV will air 10 of the National Hockey League (NHL) team’s games during the 2013-14 regular season.

The first game will air tonight (Tuesday, 8 October) on CW6 when the Coyotes play at the New York Islanders.

Coyotes President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc commented: “We are very excited about our partnership with 3TV to televise 10 Coyotes over-the-air games this season.

“3TV has been a great partner since 1996 and these OTA games will ensure that every fan in the Valley can watch Coyotes games on television.

“This partnership will provide our fans with top-notch coverage and promotion and exposure to Coyotes hockey."

Other games included in the deal see the Coyotes face the Carolina Hurricanes, Vancouver Canucks, Anaheim Ducks (x2), Nashville Predators, Minnesota Wild, Colorado Avalanche, San Jose Sharks and the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"We are thrilled to be carrying 10 Phoenix Coyotes games this season across our two television stations, 3TV and CW6," said Nick Nicholson, President and GM of 3TV and CW6.

"Our stations have a strong commitment to the local community, and being able to bring the Phoenix Coyotes to our viewers furthers our commitment to great local programming."

The agreements with each of the clubs that the NHL players have signed to play with in Europe, Russia, etc., will be immediately null and void once the NHL lockout ends, and they will return post haste to the USA and to their respective teams. Currently, the outlook for a resolution is not positive so I understand. Not being fully aware of the actual contract that the NHL has entered into with the NBC Television Network, their could be some real negative results legally for the NHL if this lockout is not settled by the time of the January 1st Winter Classic Hockey Game, as the TV Sponsorship Revenue has to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars for this game (and the broadcasts of the events the week before, etc.., relating to the game). So if that's not enough to settle, then the season will be lost totally, and the future of the NHL as we know it today in jeopardy. I personally believe that the current commissioner, Gary Bettman, albeit the mouthpiece for the owners, needs to go, as he is as caustic an individual as you can possibly get in the eyes of the fans. All the normal hockey fan has to do is see him, and their blood begins to boil. It's the ignorance and greed of the owners totally in this case. Just days before they were to institute a "new clause"in the new collective bargaining agreement...limiting the number of years that a player can be signed to per contract to (5) years maximum, they were signing players to (12) years. A total group of fools, and at salaries that were higher that what they were agreeing to in the salary cap in the new CBA, as well. The owners believed they would have legal rights to not honor these previously signed contracts once the new CBA was in force. What I would hope (which will never happen), is that a Federal U.S. Judge, allows for the desertification of the Players Association, and allows the players to form a new league with the players as the owners. This is one of those scenarios where the owners need to be "broken"...they all need to have to file for bankruptcy...then let the players own the teams...pay the rent on the buildings...or take over the mortgages from bankruptcy courts, and be done with the NHL as we have known it. The ticket prices are "unreasonable" to say the least, and let's bring hockey back to where it should be...where the players make a salary based upon their contribution to their team's standing in the division / league, and put an end to the elitist nonsense of at least one professional sport in America!

Well, they hope to have it up and running by either 2013 or 2014. I'm sure they'll be able to expand the KHL, but I'm unsure whether they can do so in such a short period of time. It's ambitious.
