Topic - Hockey Night In Canada

Hockey Night in Canada (often abbreviated Hockey Night or HNIC) is the branding used for CBC Sports' presentations of the National Hockey League. While the name is now used for all NHL broadcasts on the CBC television network (regardless of the time of day), Hockey Night in Canada is primarily associated with CBC's Saturday night NHL broadcasts, a practice originating from Saturday NHL broadcasts that began in 1931 on the CNR Radio network and its predecessors, and debuting on television beginning in 1952. Initially only airing a single game weekly, the modern incarnation airs a weekly double-header, various segments during the intermissions and between games (such as Don Cherry's Coach's Corner), and pre and post-game coverage of the night's games. - Source: Wikipedia
