Comcast SportsNet will televise its first Chicago Blackhawks home game of the season on Nov. 11.
That 6 p.m. game against the Detroit Red Wings is expected to be the first “in a series” of Blackhawks home games the station will broadcast, according to a statement from the team and Comcast SportsNet. The statement didn’t provide details on other home games that Comcast SportsNet would televise.
“We are entering a new era and putting home games back on TV is the first step to supporting our great players and fans,” Blackhawks Chairman Rocky Wirtz, son of recently deceased Blackhawks owner Bill Wirtz, said in the statement.
The Blackhawks and Comcast SportsNet last week said they were in talks about televising some of the team’s home games this season.
