As part of a promo for the Stadium Series and the Winter Olympics, NBC is going to be following several high profile NHL players as they prep for the outdoor games and Sochi. Henrik Lundqvist will be one of the players that will be higlighted, and the cameras will be following him as he prepares for the outdoor games in January and backstopping Team Sweden in Sochi. There are rumors that the GoPro cameras will be used on the refs to follow on-ice action, which is nothing short of awesome.
The series will be a lot like the NHL’s 24/7 HBO Specials that run before the Winter Classic. The six-part series will air on 1/22, 1/29, 2/5, 2/27, 3/5 and 3/12 on the NBC Sports Network. Other confirmed players include John Tavares, Sidney Crosby, Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane.
