Hockey Night in Canada, a CBS Broadcast television show that occurs after every second period in the NHL Hockey Season will be ending this year after the Los Angeles Kings took the Stanley Cup.

It should be noted that Hockey Night in Canada will return next season but under new ownership. Rogers plans to hire brand new, young hosts that can host the show for decades to come. This means our beloved Don Cherry won’t be making a return to the program as a full time host, you can be ensured that he will make frequent guest appearances with the new hosts. Rogers purchased the rights to Hockey Night in Canada for $5.1 Billion.

Don Cherry said the following, “It is a shame to see that the show will be going to Rogers. I have loved spending time with Ron MacLean working on Hockey Night in Canada and Coach’s Corner. The both of us have spend the last two decades surrounding ourselves around these two shows. We know that if CBS was able to afford to keep the show running they would, unfortunately business is business and CBS had to sell the show in order to continue operating as a Television Broadcasting Network
