Back-to-back trips to the Stanley Cup Semifinals appeared to be enough to earn the New York Islanders some national exposure this season.

The Islanders are set to appear 12 times on nationally televised broadcasts between TNT, ESPN and ESPN+/Hulu. Four games will air on TNT, two on ESPN and six exclusively on ESPN+/Hulu.

Of the Islanders’ 12 national appearances, four will take place at UBS Arena this season and only one of them will air on broadcast television. As part of the NHL’s new rights deal with ESPN, 75 regular-season games will air exclusively on Hulu or ESPN+.

Among the more noteworthy games that will receive a national audience, two of the Islanders’ games against the Tampa Bay Lightning will be among them. The New York Islanders first trip to Seattle on Jan. 4 will also be broadcast exclusively over streaming services.

And their Oct.19 game in Chicago against the Blackhawks will air on ESPN.

The Islanders’ traditional broadcast partner, MSG Plus, will carry the remaining 70 games this season locally. Below is the complete national broadcast schedule for the New York Islanders.
