The Associated PressThe NHL is expanding its reach into Russia through a new streaming agreement that’s set to make every regular-season and playoff game available in the country.
The league reached an agreement with Yandex that will more than triple the amount of games available to fans in Russia. Staging a game in Russia remains a possibility in the coming years.
“It’s a game-changer for us,” NHL executive vice president of international and media strategy David Proper said Wednesday. “We’re more than dipping our toe into the market.”
