Sportsnet NHL Launch Event

A few weeks ago Rogers and Sportsnet held an event at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier to share the details of their first season as the official broadcaster of all NHL hockey games. In attendance were NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, six-time Stanley Cup winner Mark Messier, Hockey Night in Canada hosts Ron Macleans and George Stroumboulopoulos, and many other Rogers executives. Everyone wanted to talk to Maclean, take a photo with Messier, flirt with Strombo, and give Bettman a piece of their mind!
