“Never before has women?s professional hockey had the opportunity to reach so many people on American television in the United States,” NWHL commissioner Tyler Tumminia said in a statement. “As we have seen with the WNBA and NWSL this year when women?s major league sports leagues are given a strong showcase, viewership is increased and countless new fans connect with the teams and players. NBC Sports provides the NWHL?s biggest games in our upcoming season in Lake Placid with best-in-class production and award-winning announcers. The NWHL will deliver intense, memorable hockey for the viewers on NBCSN as an Isobel Cup champion is crowned.”
This will be the first time women’s professional hockey games will be aired on a major national network.
