Hockey Day in Canada To Broadcast Games in Several Languages

CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada hosts “Hockey Day in Canada,” the annual tribute to the game of hockey tomorrow, February 9, 2008. As usual, all six Canadian NHL teams are in action but given the quirky schedule, some of the games involve American-based opponents.

What really caught my attention is that the broadcast languages will include several languages other than English and French. The schedule is as follows:

Detroit at Toronto (Mandarin; 12p PST)
Montreal at Ottawa (Hindi; 4p PST)
Edmonton at Calgary (English only; 4p PST)
Colorado at Vancouver (Cantonese; 7p PST)

The Mandarin broadcast is by two University of Toronto students and the two Hindi broadcasters are women. These broadcasts are available on the internet.
