In breaking news, the company Amazon purchased a minority share of the Diamond Sports Group, which affects the broadcasting rights of 12 NHL teams: the Anaheim Ducks, Arizona Coyotes, Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, St. Louis Blues, and Tampa Bay Lightning.

This marks a new chapter for NHL teams that were affiliated to Bally Sports. Amazon is expected to make major changes in the streaming of games: making them available on Amazon Prime.


Big news this morning that Amazon is acquiring a minority stake in Diamond Sports Group.

The regional sports network filed for bankruptcy last year, putting local media rights for 37 teams across the NBA, MLB, and NHL in jeopardy.

Now, customers can watch games on Amazon Prime.


This transition is a great thing for fans who were worried about their local stations.

More details about the deal are expected soon and we'll keep you updated.
