Puck Junk Podcast: The ESPN-NHL Television Deal

Episode #86: March 16, 2021

Sal Barry and Tim Parish talk about the 7-Year television deal between the NHL and ESPN, why this is great for hockey, and what the NHL needs to do to market itself better — or at least how it could make strides in the right direction. Plus, updates about new hockey cards by Upper Deck, President’s Choice Trading Cards and Topps.
