TORONTO & NEW YORK (June 13, 2024) — The Hockey News and Yahoo Sports have announced a strategic partnership involving editorial integration, syndication and exclusive video content. The partnership also calls for Yahoo Sports technology to power TheHockeyNews.com advertising and sales integrations, including on its new NHL team community platform built with Roundtable technology.

The Hockey News will become the primary hockey content provider for Yahoo Sports, the internet’s leading destination for comprehensive sports news. Yahoo Sports will distribute The Hockey News content across its platforms, guiding fans to a wide range of hockey coverage produced by a dedicated team of journalists reporting on every NHL team.
