Deal now official: ESPN and Turner Sports will be the broadcasters of NHL for the next seven years.

Like ESPN, Turner's Bleacher Report will have exclusive highlight rights to NHL material. Games will air on TNT and TBS depending on content. Winter Classic also included (that was not part of the ESPN deal).

HBO Max will also be a partner. Unknown what games they'll pick up or if they'll be simulcast from TNT/TBS, though.

Here's Turner's press release:

Interesting tidbit: much like CBS/Turner's deal for the NCAA basketball tourney, rights to Stanley Cup Finals will alternate between ESPN and Turner for the next seven years, with ESPN getting first dibs (after all, they got the bigger deal AND made it first).

All this talk of the rangers/isles, meanwhile the rangers/capitals game tonight might be the most must-watch game of the entire season.

And now the rangers have fired the gm and president. Dolan is entering the hockey realm. Wilson may have just single handedly turned the rangers into the knicks.
