VANCOUVER -- Sportsnet announced Tuesday it has reached a 10-year partnership extension with the Vancouver Canucks through the 2022-23 NHL season, continuing a 14-year network tradition as the regional television broadcaster of Canucks hockey.

The new agreement, which begins with the 2013/14 season, features a comprehensive suite of multimedia rights including television, online and mobile, delivering up to 60 regular season Vancouver Canucksgames each season.

In addition, Canucks This Week, the 30-minute weekly show providing in-depth coverage of the team throughout the season, will also continue as part of the new multimedia package.

"The Vancouver Canucks are a premium Canadian sports franchise and we are thrilled to continue this strong and important partnership," said Scott Moore, president, broadcast, Rogers Media. "This landmark agreement furthers our commitment to serving Canucks fans and connecting with our B.C. audience like never before, as well as providing a diverse portfolio of sports assets and content to our viewers. It also reinforces Rogers’ and Sportsnet’s continued investment in sports to drive future growth."

Sportsnet has been broadcasting Canucks games since the network’s inception in 1998.

"This is a significant partnership agreement for the Canucks and Sportsnet," said Victor de Bonis, chief operating officer, Canucks Sports & Entertainment and alternate governor, NHL. "As a valued, long-term partner it was important for us to continue providing in-depth feature coverage, and quality game broadcasts to our fans through Sportsnet broadcasts."

This season, Sportsnet will deliver 34 regular season Canucks games on television – more than any other broadcaster – as well as more Canadian NHL team games on TV, in addition to coverage across radio, digital and print.

Sportsnet is the official regional television broadcast rights holder for the Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames (including radio rights on Sportsnet 960 The FAN), Edmonton Oilers, Ottawa Senators, andToronto Maple Leafs (including radio rights on Sportsnet 590 The FAN).

If TSN aired more games and had a HD channel, it would certainly be the best, But it has neither. They did do the olympics though, so i give them that.

CBC is absolute crap. Jim Houston is the only good part of the entire corporation.

I like TSN, but prefer SNet. The thing I like about SNet is that they lay out the facts and base their opinions on them. TSN feeds a little too much into the dramas and controversies.

CBC is just totally brutal.

CBC > SNet > TSN > Team 1040

CBC - Free live streaming and quality intermission spots. Awesome SC coverage

SNet - Shorty and that guy who has insightful Kraft cooking tips

TSN - I guess they have HD so that's nice

Team 1040 - Gives you the game when at work or driving
