The puck drops on the 2021-22 season, and the NHL is ready to release the Kraken!

Regular-season action starts Tuesday, October 12, at 7:30/6:30c with the Pittsburgh Penguins at the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning and the expansion Seattle Kraken at the Vegas Golden Knights on ESPN.

The NHL comes to Turner Sports as TNT airs a Wednesday night doubleheader on October 13 beginning at 7:30/6:30c featuring the New York Rangers at the Washington Capitals and the Chicago Blackhawks at the Colorado Avalanche.

It’s the first year of the NHL’s new broadcast and streaming rights deal with Turner Sports and Disney. This season will showcase 103 exclusive regular-season games across ESPN, ESPN+, Hulu and ABC, and more than 1,000 out-of-market games will be available on ESPN+.

TNT, in its first season of NHL coverage, will feature a 50-game regular-season schedule, including the NHL Winter Classic on January 1 and other outdoor games.

NHL Network will feature an extensive live game schedule throughout the regular season, beginning Thursday, October 14, with the Kraken at the Nashville Predators at 8/7c.

ESPN/ABC, TNT and NHL Network combine to televise the Stanley Cup playoffs beginning in early May 2022.
