NEW YORK (June 27, 2011) – After wrapping up a successful 2010-11 NHL campaign, the NHL Network™ team is continuing its live programming momentum with special coverage of the 2011 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee announcement tomorrow.
On Tuesday, June 28, NHL Network U.S. will air TSN’s coverage of the 2011 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductee announcement at 3:00 p.m. ET. Bill Hay, HHOF CEO and Chairman of the Board, and Jim Gregory and Pat Quinn,

With a bevy of players and builders eligible this year, OTF’s Brian Duff and colleague Brad May will have plenty to talk about on a special edition of NHL On The Fly at 6:00 p.m. ET.
