Some cools news: The NHL has expanded its partnership with producer Ross Greenburg to create original hockey content for NBC Sports. (That’s us!)

From the press release:

NHL Original Productions will create original, long- and short-form hockey programming for NBC Sports and the League’s media assets, beginning later this season. The new venture reflects the partnership forged between the League and NBC over the past six years and reaffirmed by the 10-year media rights deal signed in April, 2011. The launch of NHL Original Productions is the latest collaboration between the NHL and Greenburg – an alliance that produced two critically-acclaimed programs on HBO: Broad Street Bullies and the Emmy Award-winning 24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic.

It’s being reported that the first documentary, “Cold War on Ice: Summit Series ’72,” will premiere Jan. 2. (The best part of that series was when Henderson scored for Canada.)
