Led by host James Duthie, TSN’s Hockey Insiders and experts are Canada’s most-trusted source for hockey news and information. TSN was the first broadcaster to deliver comprehensive, full-day coverage of NHL Trade Deadline Day, beginning in 2000. Each year, Canadians overwhelmingly make TRADECENTRE their #1 choice for hockey news and analysis. Last year’s TRADECENTRE attracted an average audience more than three times that of its closest competitor. TSN’s TRADECENTRE is once again sponsored by Tim Hortons, which will be featured prominently throughout TSN’s 10 consecutive hours of live coverage, as well as across TSN Digital platforms. Broadcast Team Duthie leads TSN’s all-star roster of Hockey Insiders and experts through the network’s signature 10-hour TRADECENTRE broadcast. TRADECENTRE delivers breaking news and instant analysis of every transaction, interviews with players, GMs, and coaches, along with frequent updates from SPORTSCENTRE’s Bureau Reporters, who are on-site with nine different teams, including every Canadian team.
