Somewhat lost in yesterday’s Willie Mitchell news was the fact that the Kings will be getting significantly more exposure on national television during this season. Yesterday’s release revealed that the Kings will be on NBC twice (Feb. 13 at Philadelphia and March 13 at Dallas), on Versus five times (Oct. 25 at Minnesota, Dec. 13 at Detroit, Jan. 3 vs. Chicago, Jan. 17 at Dallas and April 4 at San Jose) and on NHL Network five times (Oct. 12 vs. Atlanta, Nov. 11 vs. Dallas, Nov. 15 at San Jose, Dec. 2 vs. Florida and Feb. 28 vs. Detroit). Include three games on CBC, one on TSN and one on RDS, and that’s 17 games that will be televised to a wide audience. By contrast, last season the Kings had one game on Versus and none on NBC. Fox Sports has yet to announce its Kings schedule for this season, but my understanding is that it will feature an increased number of games. I’ll definitely post that when I get definitive information.
