    While we're waiting on concrete information one way or the other from Center Ice...didn't someone say that ESPN2 was carrying at least the American games?

    I searched ESPN, Outdoor Life Network, and NHL Center Ice sites and have not found any listings for games to be televised. I certainly hope someone picks these games up with the US looking like they might have a legit shot at doing well this year.

    I do not think that ESPN will be showing any of the games.

    FSN is suppose to be airing the US game(s)?. Im not sure if that was nationwide on FSN or just certain hockey hot spots like Minnesota/Det Etc.

    at some point, i read that espn2 IS carrying the USA's games, and if they participate in the gold medal game, that will be on ESPN.

    That was last year, someone posted an article on the board that was old..you probably read that. ESPN or ESPN2 isn't carrying any games. At the US press conference they said FSN would be.

    That i am unsure of, it better be for all regions...even if its not theres a good chance FSNY will be one of the few regions that airs it(unless there is a basketball game on or something)...they usually pick up on the hockey.

    If I'm not mistaken, USA Hockey is going to make some announcement about the TV schedule some time this week.

    Good!

    The stuff about FSN was in another thread around here, and I'm pretty sure it was only regional. Don't ask me which region though, it sure wasn't mine so I don't remember.

    Doubt it would be mine either. No doubt they think we'd rather see re-runs of their crap shows or meaningless college basketball games.

    Just checked some regions on the fox sports site and theres no mention of any hockey other than the nhl games in their respective regions during the time the wj's are going on. Plenty of poker and even some high school football for a region or 2

    Here is a portion of the email I received after inquiring about TV listings on Center Ice:

    Thank you for your email and continued interest in the NHL.

    We hope to televise the WJC games this season, which takes place between December 26 and January 5.

    We will know definitely closer to the opening of the event, so please continue to log on to NHL.com and check your local listings for updates.

    Thanks,
    NHL Center Ice

    I have an email in to Dave Fischer, who is Director of Media & Public Relations for USA Hockey, asking him about US TV coverage. If/when he responds I will post an update to this thread.

    Yeah, I got the same thing from them a few days ago. I also asked them if they were going to broadcast any Olympic games and they said no.

    Hey I'm from Saskatoon too but I'm hoping that someone in the US shows if only for exposure for the game of hockey. It is often the case that the casual fan will support USA Hockey greater than their favorite NHL team. (ie. Olympics)

    Are you suggesting that if the tournament was on TV in the US that people would watch it?

    I'm having Christmas in Minnesota this year so I won't be able to watch Canada on TSN :cry:

    But if they will be showing Team USA games on TV, this would be the year to watch them.
