NHL on NBCThe NHL will be on NBC for at least one more season. The “Peacock Network” will exercise its option today, according to John Ourand of the Sports Business Daily. As reported by SBD, NBC will carry NHL games next season, “including 10 "Sunday Game of the Week" broadcasts and up to 15 playoff games. Regular season ratings increased by 11% this year, thanks largely to the popular Winter Classic. There had been speculation that NBC may pass on the option, opening a window for ESPN to grab the package.”

Ratings are seen to be up for the new wave of star power in the league, including Sidney Crosby of the Penguins and Alex Ovechkin of the Capitals.
