States Hockey League announced that it has extended its agreement with B2
Networks as the league’s provider of broadband audio and video content.
Terms of the new, three-year contract were not disclosed.

two-plus years. They have a passion for the game and a vision that
matches that of the USHL, and we are pleased to have them and their innovations
on board for years to come,” said USHL president Gino Gasparini.
“B2 Networks made a statement to USHL ownership that they were in it for
the long-term by sponsoring our Player of the Year award. At that time we
thought it was appropriate to discuss an extension of the agreement, and
fortunately for both sides, we were able to make it come to fruition.”

the 2007-08 season the best it has been since they partnered their resources to
bring broadband video of all league games to the Internet in 2005.
USHL proved to be an incredible partner over the past couple of seasons, and
their enthusiasm about continuing the partnership makes us very proud to
announce the extension of our agreement,” stated Richard Brosal, B2

Tier I league, and we are excited to work with the USHL to continue to bring
that product into the homes of hockey fans all over the world.”
