 NEW YORK (AP) -Versus has picked up an option to televise NHL games for three more years.
``We're very pleased to continue our association with them,'' NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly wrote in an e-mail Tuesday.
Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
The cable network, formerly known as OLN, began televising NHL games during the 2005-06 season. It paid $65 million for the first year, $70 million for the second, and exercised a $72.5 million option for this season.
Ratings for NHL games on Versus are up this season. Through 29 games, average viewership has increased 34 percent from 195,666 to 261,760. Versus is airing 57 regular-season games this season.
