MAJOR NEWS: WCTX MyTV9 inks major TV hockey deal with UConn Hockey

Recommended Posts

The year 2018 continues with more big local hockey news, in addition to the Hurricanes under new ownership, the new soccer stadium deal, new soccer team, new Hartford Travel Center almost complete, and the Busway being expanded to east of the river.  There is a LOT of developments happening behind the scenes from what I have heard from sources, I don't want to go into anything **rther, the general public doesn't have the stomach for this kind of thing, but there are deals being made behind the scene and these deals in time will explain why the State is pouring so much money into the XL Center to bring it up to NHL standards, that is all I am going to say on that matter.

 

(WTNH) — The University of Connecticut and WTNH News 8/WCTX MyTV9 have announced a partnership to broadcast live, two upcoming men’s hockey games throughout the state of Connecticut.

The Huskies’ match-ups with nationally ranked programs Providence on Thursday, January 18 and New Hampshire on Sa****ay, January 27 will be aired live on WTNH’s sister station, WCTX MyTV9.   UConn’s game against the Friars is set for a 7 pm start while the match-up with UNH is scheduled for 3:30 pm, both at the XL Center in downtown Hartford.

The timing of all this is very very interesting:

  1. a few weeks ago, State of CT commits major money to XL renovations
  2. days ago, UConn decides to keep Headquarters in Hartford
  3. days ago, Hurricanes fall under new ownership
  4. .... and now, just days later, major hockey TV deal is inked in Connecticut

 

some people are thinking that this UConn TV hockey deal is to gauge market interest throughout the state of Connecticut, the timing of all this is really something, everything seems to be happening all at once

"To sum it all up: none of this has anything to do with the NHL returning to Hartford and Frank obviously has neglected to take his meds."

Hard to dispute...
