Which NHL games are subject to blackouts?

Print

Blackout restrictions apply to all games on NHL CENTER ICE. These blackouts are determined by the leagues, not by DIRECTV, and they're designed to protect the television rights holders in the competing teams' respective home markets. Blackouts are not based on arena sellouts.
