After ESPN stopped airing NHL games they did everything possible to ignore the sport; highlights were few and far between, analysis was non-existent and for most Americans the sport faded from consciousness. Well, hockey is back and making an attempt at a resurgence, the first step was today with the big news from ESPN: starting October 1st ESPN will air over 300 hockey games on its various networks. HOORAY!
The only catch? The games will only be broadcast on the family of ESPN networks residing in EUROPE, primarily in the UK.
Looks like hockey will never get another chance…
