Because they are showing a local/regional networks broadcast of the game. Those companies advertising do not have contracts with the NHL for advertisement and people watching on GCL are not counted in ratings. If you live in Vacouver do you really care how much you can get off a new convertible in Tamp bay? And if you live in Arizona do you care how much you can get a snow blower for in Minnesota?

The NHL would not make any money off of showing the commercials and it takes less bandwidth to show an NHL ad picture than to broadcast commercials.
