TVA Sports took to the airways on Monday, Sept. 12, for its first day on the air. The TVA Sports broadcast team of Pierre Rinfret, Yvon Pedneault and Enrico Ciccone will call the action this season.
"We are happy to bring the Senators to our network right from the start, giving our viewers the opportunity to see the best players in the world.
