/// NHL Network Preps Olympics Highlights Show

February 11, 2014  |  Media Week

While the Winter Olympics has put the NHL ’s 2013-14 campaign on ice for the next two weeks, the league’s in-house cable network hasn’t exactly been idle. In fact, beginning Feb. 12, NHL Network will begin production on a special live highlights show that will run immediately following the Latvia-Switzerland telecast on MSNBC. NHL Tonight: 2014 Sochi Edition will debut tomorrow at 3 p.m. EST, shortly after the two Group C teams conclude their opening game. NHL Net has landed McDonald’s as the presenting sponsor of the half-hour show, which is designed to complement NBCUniversal’s coverage of the men’s hockey tournament. NHL Net’s Kathryn Tappen will host the live show from Sochi, while her regular NHL Tonight co-hosts E.J. Hradek and Mark Roe and analysts Mike Johnson, Jamie McLennan and Kevin Weekes will pitch in from the channel’s Toronto studios. The live show will run through the end of the gold medal round on Feb.
