Ducks getting plenty of national TV exposure … in Canada.

If you’re planning to surf for a Ducks game on a national television broadcast in 2010-11, consider moving to Canada.

In addition to three appearances on TSN (10/13 at Vancouver, 12/7 at Edmonton, 3/30 at Calgary), Anaheim will make five appearances on NHL Network Canadatied for the most of any NHL team. NHL Network Canada’s slate of games is focused entirely on games between American teams, an obvious counter-strategy to TSN’s Canada-centric programming slate. The Ducks also will go live across Canada for their Jan. 22 game at Montreal (CBC/RDS) and their Feb. 19 game at St. Louis (RDS).

Fans south of the border are reduced to one national telecast, the December 20 game in Boston on Versus. The Ducks’ local television coverage is expected to again shift between Fox Sports West, Fox Sports Prime Ticket and Santa Ana-based KDOC.
