NHL on Fox 03

The NHL on Fox logo is also considered FOX NHL Sunday.

FOX NHL Sunday is a television program that televised National Hockey League games on Fox and produced by Fox Sports. The program ran from the 1994–1995 NHL season until the 1998–1999 NHL season. Fox paid $31 million a year to televise the NHL.

FoxTrax Edit

For more details on this topic, see FoxTrax.

FoxTrax (colloquially called the glow puck, smart puck, or super puck) was a specialized ice hockey puck with internal electronics that allow its position to be tracked that was designed for NHL telecasts on Fox. Primarily, it was used to visually highlight the puck on-screen and display a trail when the puck was moving rapidly.

Stanley Cup playoff coverage Edit

During the first 2 rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, 2 games were televised each round. 

All-Star Game, Conference Finals and Stanley Cup Finals Edit

For the All-Star Game, Conference Finals, and Stanley Cup Finals, (which were national games) were hosted from the arena. The 1996 and 1997 All-Star Games were televised in prime time.

Stanley Cup Finals Edit

Fox split coverage of the Stanley Cup Finals with ESPN. Game 1 of the 1995 Stanley Cup Finals was the first Finals game shown on network television since 1980 and the first in prime time since 1973. Games 1, 5, and 7 were usually scheduled to be televised by Fox; Games 2, 3, 4, and 6 by ESPN. However from 1995 -1998, the Finals were all 4 game sweeps; 1999 Finals ended in 6 games. The consequence was that - except for 1995, when Fox did televise Game 4 - the Game 7 was never on network television. Had there been a Game 7, then Mike Emrick (play-by-play), John Davidson (color commentator), and Pierre McGuire (reporter) would've called the Game 7 on FOX. Perhaps in recognition of this, Games 3–7 were always televised by ABC in the succeeding broadcast agreement between the NHL and ABC Sports/ESPN.

1995-1999, Pierre McGuire joined as "Ice Level Reporter" for 1995-1999

Game 4 of the 1995 Final was notable because not only did the New Jersey Devils win the Stanley Cup, but also their main television play-by-play announcer, Mike Emrick announced it.

Main broadcast team, studio hosts and analystsEdit

The main broadcast team for FOX NHL Sunday was Mike Emrick and John Davidson, while regionally distributed games were handled by a variety of announcers and added popular is Inside the Glass reporter Pierre McGuire. In the first four years of the deal, James Brown and Dave Maloney hosted the show from the Fox studio in Los Angeles. In the final year, it was Suzy Kolber and Terry Crisp.

Stanley Cup Finals broadcast schedulesEdit

The end of NHL on FoxEdit

Things ended badly between Fox and the league when the NHL announced a new TV deal with ESPN that also called for ABC to become the new network TV partner. Fox challenged that it had not been given a chance to match the network component of the deal, but ABC ultimately prevailed. It is speculated, however, that Fox may again bid for NHL broadcast rights when they next come up for renewal.[1]
