Inside the Stanley Cup Hub Cities, the NHL Built a Television Studio to Play Its Games On
League Chief Content Officer Steve Mayer explains how it became critical to present the game in a unique way
This past weekend, the NHL unveiled its preliminary plans for the 2020-2021 regular season, setting a start for the regular season on January 13.
The upcoming season will bring NHL hockey back to home cities and the home arenas of the league’s 31 clubs following a successful summer that saw the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs take place in a “bubble.” Utilizing arenas in Edmonton and Toronto, the NHL successfully pulled off its 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs through its unique and comprehensive Hub Cities project.
