Mirabito Outdoor Classic To Be Televised Live On Time Warner Cable Sports And The NHL Network

February 3, 2010 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Binghamton Senators News Release

Syracuse, NY (February 3, 2010) - The Syracuse Crunch announced today that the Mirabito Outdoor Classic, the AHL's first-ever outdoor game, will be broadcast live on Time Warner Cable Sports and throughout the United States and Canada on the NHL Network.

"Having the NHL Network carry this game throughout North America is a major boost for our team, league and entire community," said Syracuse Crunch President and C.E.O., Howard Dolgon.

"Getting this game on NHL Network is a coup akin to winning the rights to Ovechkin or Crosby in the draft lottery," said Senator Charles E. Schumer. "It's going make what was already a power play for the Syracuse economy even more powerful by drawing a massive amount of attention to Central New York. And it makes our dream of having this game become an annual event even more realistic."

"Time Warner Cable Sports is proud to produce and televise live this history-making event" said TWCS Director, Doug Logan. "We greatly appreciate our longtime relationship with the Syracuse Crunch, and we're excited about sharing our exclusive, high-definition coverage with all hockey fans on Time Warner Cable Sports in New York State, and throughout the United States and Canada on NHL Network."

The NHL Network, which launched in Canada in 2001 and in the U.S. in October 2007, serves hockey fans by offering what they crave most: unprecedented 24-hour access to the most comprehensive hockey coverage, both on and off the ice.

Featuring over 75 live NHL games in the 2009-10 season, special coverage from events such as the NHL Winter Classic, live college hockey games and the signature nightly highlight show "On The Fly," NHL Network has over 30 million North American subscribers.

Tickets for the Mirabito Outdoor Classic are priced at $30 for end grandstand and $40 for center grandstand seating. Groups of 20 people or more receive a discount.

The Mirabito Outdoor Classic, the American Hockey League's first-ever outdoor game, is scheduled to be played on February 20, 2010 at 1 p.m. at the New York State Fairgrounds against the Binghamton Senators.
