Canucks 2019-20 broadcast schedule released

Televised Vancouver Canucks hockey is just a few weeks away.

The Vancouver Canucks broadcast schedule for their 50th anniversary 2019-20 season has been released. Sportsnet issued a press release today detailing their plans for coverage this year.

Sportsnet will once again be broadcasting all 82 games for the Canucks as the team’s regional rights holder. John Shorthouse, John Garrett and Dan Murphy return as the Canucks broadcast team on TV, while Brendan Batchelor and Corey Hirsch will be calling the games on the radio on Sportsnet 650.

The rise of streaming also means that all 82 Canucks game will be available to stream online on Sportsnet NOW, Sportsnet NOW+ and NHL Live. According to Sportsnet, there will be no blackouts for regional broadcasts on streaming.

Select Canucks preseason games will be televised on Sportsnet ONE and Sportsnet Pacific.

The Canucks are making 16 appearances on Hockey Night in Canada this season, beginning with a trip to Calgary on Oct. 5. The Canucks and Flames will also square off on Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada on Feb.8.

You can view the Canucks full 2019-20 broadcast schedule below:

Sportsnet has done a good job in the past broadcasting hockey ceremonies, so look for more of the same in 2019-20. The Canucks will be retiring the Sedin Twins jerseys and inducting Alex Burrows into the Ring of Honour as part of a season-long celebration honouring five decades of Canucks hockey.

  • Anyone know the details on Sportsnet NOW?

    (1) can you record games?

    (2) can you watch a game in progess from the beginning (without learning the score)?

    (3) can you watch past games without learning the score?

    (4) if you can watch past games, how long are they available for?

    (5) are there commercials in games?

    (6) if there are commercials, can you skip them?

    • Calgary and Edmonton decided they wanted a similar tourney closer to home. That left only Winnipeg and Vancouver last year who were joined by 2 university teams. After that, it was decided the very successful Young Stars in Penticton would be no more, at least for the foreseeable future. It’s a big disappointment for a lot of local Vancouver fans, but at least we got to see Elias last year, along with a few others.
