The NHL is coming to TNT and TurnerMedia.
On April 27, the NHL and Turner Sports announced a seven-year media rights agreement that will see regular-season, Stanley Cup Playoff and Stanley Cup Final games televised on TNT and TBS. The deal begins in the 2021-22 season.
Following the announcement, wrestlers took to social media to react to the news.

Richard Deitsch of The Athletic reports that no decision has been made on which nights the NHL will air.
Turner says no programming decisions have been made yet regarding the NHL and days of the week it will air. That is something @AEW fans will/should be following.— Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) April 27, 2021
AEW currently has a deal with TNT/Turner as Dynamite airs every Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on TNT. The NBA often promotes Dynamite during games and Turner employee Shaquille O'Neal competed in AEW in March.
