Watching Games online

I have some websites to check out on where to see some games online as the season is getting ready to start. Some leagues get going this weekend such as the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) and several of the Canadian Junior A Leagues get going including the British Colombia Hockey League (BCHL), the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) and the Maritime Junior A Hockey League (MJAHL) and the North American Hockey League (NAHL) get going this week. I have found some websites to where you can listen and watch games on the internet.

Most of the indendpent websites you may have to pay to use them. If your looking for free viewing, you may have use the indvindual league websites.

The first website is called B2TV, this website has coverage of the majority of the games in both the North American Hockey League (NAHL) and the United States Hockey League (USHL), in addidition you can check out games from the top conferences such as Hockey East and the WCHA. Most of the brodcasts start up about 10-15 minutes before the game starts up and you do have to pay to view the games either with indivindual games, or you can choose a season pass for the league or team of your choice.

In addidition to ice hockey, they do brodcast for many other sports that you can think of. This would be a idea to check out hockey action of all sorts for a low price.

As for the indivindual links to check out games. Check some of the links espically from the major junior leagues and the Canadian Jr. A Leagues.

If your looking for more tournament and big event stuff, check out Fast Hockey to check out different tournaments and events from all over North America. This is better for people who are scouts and recurtiers of different teams to eveulate talent and take a look at who to watch throughout the season.
