DraftKings announced Wednesday that it reached an agreement to become the official sports betting, daily fantasy sports and iGaming partner of the NHL as well as the exclusive NHL sportsbook and DFS provider for Turner Sports.
Regarding the working relationship between DraftKings, Turner Sports and the NHL, DraftKings CEO Jason Robins said:
"The NHL has some of the most passionate fans in all of sports and we are delighted to be working with the league once again, while developing a rich and engaging viewership and content experience that matches this fanbases' enthusiasm through our deal with Turner. Over the years DraftKings has become a brand synonymous with sports, with a fan-first approach through real-money gaming options, and we look forward to collaborating with the NHL alongside Turner Sports and Bleacher Report to provide hockey fans with what's next in sports."
The partnership is in conjunction with Turner Sports' new multimedia rights agreement with the NHL, which will have 50 regular-season games air on TNT during the 2021-22 season as well as the Stanley Cup playoffs and Stanley Cup Final.
