Henrik Lundqvist to be NHL Reality TV Star


Now comes "NHL Revealed: A Season Like No Other," announced in conjunction on Monday by the league, the NHL Players’ Association, the NBC Sports Network and CBC in Canada, the two outlets that will broadcast the seven-part behind-the-scenes series starting in mid-January.

This reality series will focus on two dozen NHL players across nine teams – including the Rangers’ Henrik Lundqvist and Islanders captain John Tavares – as they play in outdoor games, then go on to the Olympics.

The weekly show will debut on NBCSN on Jan. 22 and continue through the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

The Rangers play twice this season at Yankee Stadium, facing the Devils at 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 26 and then Tavares’ Islanders three days later at 7:30 p.m.

Lundqvist won’t be the only Ranger to be followed – the team expects at least one more player to be featured, think a past Olympian such as Rick Nash or Brad Richards – and the organization is already comfortable with the process. They and the Flyers were the subjects of "24/7" as part of the Rangers’ 3-2 win on Jan. 2, 2012 at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park.
