The NHL maybe in constant scandals with Gary Bettman and the Arizona Coyotes, and the Chicago Blackhawks consistently providing fans with the drama the NHL claims not to generate.

In between all that noise, the NHL has changed broadcast partners in with ESPN and TNT taking the reigns and broadcasting the playoffs.

They have picked up one of the biggest names as a fan out there.




Charles Barkley, played in the NBA during the time of enforcers, so he may have found a shared passion with the intensity and fighting in NHL games.

Barkley never shied away from a fight as he had many in the NBA himself, so he Ryan Reaves, Marcus Foligno, and Luke Schenn already have something in common.

While this is just Barkley professing his fandom of the NHL, gaining a fan of this stature in spite of Bettman's tanking of the sport is impressive and needs to happen more often.

Anyway, here's Chuck taking on the Bad Boy Piston's Bill Laimbeer.
