NHL Releases Stanley Cup Qualifiers & Exhibition TV Schedule

Local, National, Streaming, and Canadian NHL TV Schedule

Jason Gurwin

After nearly a four month stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NHL is coming back for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. But before the Stanley Cup Playoffs actually takes place there will be a 16-team Stanley Cup qualifier to determine the final four seeds in each conference (as well as the seedings of the top four teams.

In the U.S., most games will be broadcast locally on team’s regional sports networks, while out-of-market coverage will be on NBC Sports Network, NHL Network, and USA Network. Select games will be air exclusively on NBC.

In Canada, the games will be broadcast exclusively by Sportsnet, the national rights holder. 23 of the games will be available on Sportsnet, with three on SN1, seven on SN360, and one on FX Canada. Sportsnet will air just three of the NHL exhibition games.

For out-of-market fans, during the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, NHL.TV will offer two plans: $4.99 for every team or $3.99 for a single team’s games.
