As most of you know, Baseball Advanced Media is a giant upgrade for NHL fans. It has been hugely successful/profitable for MLB teams.

Brock Boeser-VAN hasn't been too visible, but his shot is probably the best here. Has put away a few chances from a distance.

Corey Pronman @coreypronman

Tkachuk scores two goals in a few seconds. Looking very dynamic....tough offensive plays, getting to the net. Potential top 10-15 pick.

MLBAM is the entity that's provided the tracking data like Pitch F/X in baseball. Will be experienced when NHL gets their tracking data.

John Buccigross @Buccigross

From a TV and digital sense, depending on level of commitment, NHL partnering with MLB is potentially a giant leap for hockey fans in US.

As part of the NHL-MLB agreement, the NHL will send Cooke and Rinaldo in exchange for Puig and the McCarthys.
