It was announced at the end of the playoffs that RDS has struck a deal with the NHL to present games from the Montreal Canadiens which left Radio-Canada with nothing, ending a 50 years tradition on saturday nights.
According to information acquired by La Presse in Montreal, the saturday night game would be a common broadcast. Pierre Houde would describe the action and Yvon Pedneault would be the commentator. Between periods would be the part where the SRC would come in with it’s own people (they haven’t been announced).
The soon-to-be-reached deal would able the SRC to broadcast all saturday night games and playoffs with the Montreal Canadiens.
This should be officially announced today.
