NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said Sunday he expects the league to set another record for league-wide revenu
e, boosted by a successful Winter Classic on New Year's Day and the HBO series that centered on the outdoor contest between the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins.
"Four to five percent maybe, early projection, but we seem to be in a good place in terms of the business," Bettman said before the Ducks' game against San Jose at the Honda Center. The NHL's revenue last season was slightly more than $2.7 billion.
"We're having a good season on all fronts. The game on the ice is good. Look at the races in the West. If you yawn and take the night off you can drop from fifth to 12th place in the blink of an eye Revenues are strong, attendance is up and things are continuing to grow. So in a difficult economic environment we're holding our own and even growing a little."
