Despite advertising these games a major event for the NHL to help grow the game, the NHL has blacked out the Ottawa Senators vs. Detroit Red Wings game for everyone outside of Ottawa, and outspoken agent Allan Walsh had something to say about it.


NHL: «We're so excited to bring these iconic NHL teams to Sweden to play meaningful regular season games, we're just not going to allow anyone in Canada to see them»

While the NHL is lauded as one of the most entertaining games in the world of sprots, under Gary Bettman, the league has had trouble marketing the league to new viewers, and this is just another example of it.

Ultimately, the NHL has a great fanbase, but if they want to grow the game, seeing a game in this type of setting would be the exact way to do just that, but unfortunately, the league has made another mistake, one that will only anger that hard core fanbase.
