NHL, NBC Sports Group Announces 2020-21 US TV Schedule
The NHL and NBC Sports Group finally announced their full 2020-21 US national television schedule. This partnership marks the league’s first appearance on the network during the regular season.
The league’s shortened 2021 season officially returns this month. Fans can watch all their favorites through public and exclusive broadcasts and place bets on the hottest match-ups of the season. Under the NBC Sports Group, a total of ten Vegas Golden Knights games will be broadcasted nationally on all NBC family networks. One game will be exclusively broadcasted on NBC and six games on NBCSN exclusive broadcasts. These games will be televised on NBCSN throughout the U.S. and Las Vegas local market.
The remaining three games on NBCSN are broadcasted nationally. However, these games will not be included in the Golden Knights’ authorized distribution territory. They air on AT&T SportsNet instead. AT&T SportsNet also broadcasts the other 49 regular-season Vegas Golden Knights games locally within the Golden Knights market.
The Golden Knights’ current 56-game schedule features division-only opponents during the regular season, while Vegas faces each team in the division a total of eight times in 2021. The Golden Knights welcome the season at home against the Anaheim Ducks at T-Mobile Arena on January 14, Thursday, at 7 p.m. PT and also face the Ducks two days later on January 16, Saturday, at 7 p.m. PT.
