NEW YORK (January 21, 2010) – Live from Calgary, Chicago Blackhawks president John McDonough and Calgary Flames president and CEO Ken King are guests on today’s edition of NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman on NHL.com and SIRIUS XM Radio at 6 p.m. ET.

McDonough, a Chicago native named President of the Blackhawks on Nov. 20, 2007, has played an instrumental role in the revitalization of the team’s profile. Last season, the Blackhawks led the NHL in attendance with an average of 21,783 and made the playoffs for the first time since 2002. Chicago’s 34-12-4 record after 50 games is the organization’s best mark since 1972.

King, an enthusiastic businessman, has been in his position with the Flames organization since 2001. Overseer of a Flames team that is four points off the Northwest Division lead, King spends an enormous amount of time with community efforts including his current involvement as co-chair of REACH (a $300-million medical fund-raising initiative).

Calgary hosts Chicago tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET at the Saddledome which will be the second game of TSN’s doubleheader (Toronto at Tampa Bay, 7:00 p.m. ET).

The Blackhawks who are in second place overall, lead the Central Division with 72 points and are on pace for an all-time franchise points record. Calgary sits third in the Northwest Division with 58 points. The show encourages fans to call in with questions for the Commissioner. To submit questions to NHL Hour call 1-877-645-6696.

NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman now broadcasts live on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET on NHL Home Ice (XM Channel 204 and on SIRIUS Channel 208 as part of the “Best of XM” programming package) and NHL.com. The show will re-air on SIRIUS XM Radio, with archived shows available for download via podcast on NHL.com.

NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman is a production of NHL Radio.
