Following a successful NHL All-Star Weekend on ESPN, ABC and ESPN+, the National Hockey League (NHL) returns to ESPN+ and Hulu this week with an exclusive national game on Friday, February 11, in addition to 34 out-of-market games.*
Friday’s ESPN+ and Hulu-exclusive game features a Pacific Division matchup with the Seattle Kraken (15-28-4) traveling to the Honda Center to take on rookie sensation and human highlight-reel Tyler Zegras and the Anaheim Ducks (23-16-9) at 10 p.m. ET. Zegras, who dazzled fans with an unbelievable, blindfolded goal in the Breakaway Challenge skills competition (video), and the Ducks continue their regular-season playoff push as they sit near the top of their division.
