ASN Features HKAIH Ice Hockey Series

With a view to promoting and developing the sport of ice hockey, Hong Kong Academy of Ice Hockey (HKAIH) has partnered with All Sports Network (ASN) to produce and present a series of ice hockey features on TV. The ice hockey series has a total of 12 episodes of around 4-5 minutes each and will be screened during NHL games on ASN Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand from November 20, 2009 onwards.

ASN is a brand new 24-hour Pan Asian sports channel featuring exclusive coverage of some of the America¡¦s biggest sports and other thrilling action events from around the world including the U.S. National Football League (NFL ¡V up to 4 live games per week), the National Hockey League (NHL ¡V up to 5 live games per week), and NCAA college basketball and football, March Madness, Motor-sports (such as Formula Drift, Touring Car, GT racing), Extreme Sports, Pro Bull Riding, and many more.

HKAIH was established in 2007 with the goal of promoting and developing the sport of ice hockey among the local youth community, including the less fortunate.

The TV series features different stories about the development of ice hockey in Hong Kong. We hope that through this TV series, people will learn more about the sport and ice hockey will eventually become a sport for all in Hong Kong.
