We were telling you about it last night, it's a very big deal in the NHL, but one of the most important sports TV channels, especially for Gary Bettman and the NHL, Bally Sports, has filed for bankruptcy and within 30 days, will officially declare bankruptcy.

This is confirmed.

This is a serious problem for Gary Bettman, and for this reason, the NHL called an emergency meeting last night.

Clearly, there is a lot of concern right now.


The biggest story in hockey according to Sportsnet.

Recall that the Bally Sports television network has no less than 12 (!) NHL television networks. This would affect media in Los Angeles, Anaheim, Arizona, Dallas, St. Louis, Minnesota, Detroit, Columbus, Nashville, Carolina, Tampa Bay and Florida.

There will also be a serious impact on the NHL salary cap.

Anyway, in the last few hours, to publicly address this big issue for the very first time, the NHL issued an official statement.

Here it is:


Basically, it says that the NHL is watching this issue closely and will be prepared to address the issues necessary to allow fans access to the games (televised).
