With two years left on its contract for NHL rights in Canada, Rogers is looking hard into a deal with Amazon that would see it take over Monday night hockey.

YYZ Sports Media is reporting that Rogers is looking to sell Monday night NHL games to Amazon.

"This isn't just any casual chatter; insiders reveal that discussions are underway, with Amazon poised to step into the spotlight for Monday night games, including playoffs, for the remaining two years of Rogers' contract.

According to the report, technical arrangements between Amazon and Sportsnet are in place to make for a smooth transition should a deal be reached. It would mean regular Monday night games and playoffs for the remaining two years of Rogers' contract with the NHL. It's a move that could entirely change the way people watch hockey, with Amazon showing a major interest in carrying the NHL and other major sports leagues in the future.


Rogers Communucations and the NHL announced a 12-year-deal for broadcasting right in Canada back in 2013. The deal has not worked well for Rogers, as the company is said to be hemorrhaging money because of it. Selling game to Amazon may help alleviate some of those losses.
