New York, NY, United States (4E Sports) – The NHL and Premium TV network EPIX jointly announced that the Road to the NHL Outdoor Classics will make its U.S. television premiere Friday (Dec. 16) on EPIX with four weekly episodes.
In commemoration of the NHL’s centennial celebration, the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs will compete in the 2017 Scotiabank NHL Centennial Classicon New Year's Day in Toronto, Canada.
The Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues meet in the 2017 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic on January 2, in St. Louis.
The episodes — produced by 53-time Emmy award winner Ross Greenburg , narrated by Bill Camp and presented in partnership with NHL Original Productions — will tackle stories of athletes and coaches from four teams and their journey to two games played on outdoor rinks.
"Just as the NHL Winter Classic has become a New Year's tradition and annual high point of our season, the Road To series has become appointment viewing for sports fans each December," said Steve Mayer, NHL Executive Vice President and Chief Content Officer.
"This year, the series takes it to another level, chronicling four teams instead of two as they prepare for and compete in both the NHL Winter Classic and the NHL Centennial Classic,” he added.
