An Oiler-Centric Look At The NHL's Tentative TV Schedule

The ever-optimistic  NHL has released a tentative national TV Schedule for the 2012-13 season. That is, if the NHL and the players association can come to an accord over the next two weeks. Surely, that won’t be a big deal.  Right?

While I enjoy an inter-conference battle between the Panthers and the Wild, we’ll focus less on that, and a bit more on the Oilers.

The Oilers will be featured on CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada a total of twelve times this year.  Hopefully there’ll be an After Hours with Scott Oake where he’ll bandy about awkwardly with Nail Yakupov.

Here’s a list of the 2012-13 dates (and teams) Edmonton will face off against on CBC:

  • 13 October (Canucks)
  • 24 November (Flames)
  • 01 December (Ducks)
  • 15 December (Avalanche)
  • 12 January (Avalanche)
  • 19 January (Ducks)
  • 02 February (Maple Leafs)
  • 16 February (Blues)
  • 06 March (Red Wings)
  • 23 March (Blues)
  • 30 March (Canucks)
  • 13 April (Flames)

TSN is slated to pick up ten games.  That list looks like this…

  • 16 October (Kings)
  • 24 October (Flames)
  • 01 November (Canadiens, game broadcast on RDS)
  • 14 November (Blackhawks)
  • 14 December (Wild)
  • 16 January (Avalanche)
  • 04 February (Blackhawks)
  • 06 March (Red Wings)
  • 15 March (Red Wings)
  • 03 April (Flames)

Those residing in Oiler Country will see Sportsnet pick up the rest of the tab.  You know, if and when the NHL and the PA decide to break bread.
