Bravo to the CBC for striking a deal to broadcast 10 AHL hockey games this coming year. The Moose will be seen in four games during the year.
The schedule is:
AHL on CBC
Binghamton at Toronto (Oct. 17, 1 p.m. ET).
Oklahoma City at Hamilton (Oct. 24, 1 p.m. ET).
Hamilton at Toronto (Nov. 21, 1 p.m. ET).
Toronto at Hamilton (Dec. 12, 1 p.m. ET).
Toronto at Abbotsford (Jan. 16, 2011, 2 p.m. ET).
Abbotsford at Manitoba (Jan. 23, 2011, 1 p.m. ET).
Manitoba at Toronto (Feb. 27, 2011, 1 p.m. ET).
Hamilton at Toronto (March 6, 2011, 1 p.m. ET).
Abbotsford at Manitoba (March 27, 2011, 1 p.m. ET).
Manitoba at Toronto (April 3, 2011, 1 p.m. ET).
As you can see, the schedule is heavy on the Toronto Marlies. This is to ensure big Ontario audiences. However, I can complain Moose finally get exposure nationally.
The only thing missing from this deal is play-off coverage.
Still, kudos to the CBC. Hope we see some cable deals coming as well.
