His weekly play-off show and various other appearances on theScore during the 2009-2010 NHL season got rave reviews and left fans wanting more.

With Wyshynski’s wit and in-depth hockey knowledge, Puck Daddy Radio on SIRIUS channel 98 will be the go-to destination for hockey fans across North America.

I’m trying to finish this proposal, but if you’re at work and want to find out about the latest trades as the NHL Trading Deadline approaches, you can do it in several ways.
First, NHL.com is streaming TSN’s live all-day coverage and you can catch it here. Among TSN’s analysts are Mike Milbury, former Toronto Maple Leafs GM John Ferguson and Darren Pang.
You can watch Rogers Sportsnet’s extensive live coverage on-line here.
In addition, Canada’s third all-sports network, The Score, is also streaming live and started its coverage a half hour earlier than the other two networks.
Starting at 1 p.m. ET, CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada Radio will begin its coverage on Sirius Satellite Radio and continue until 8 p.m. From 1 until 4, the coverage will be on Sirius channel 126, then it will move at 4 to its regular channel, 122. It’s also streaming live at the CBC website.
And if you’re at home, the NHL Network is airing TSN’s coverage all day well.
So there are many ways to keep updated on the NHL Trading Deadline. Later.
