"In order to serve our fans, we are continuing to respond to the convergence of technology, media and consumer behavior," said Perry Cooper, NHL Senior Vice President of Digital Media. "With today's announcement, we are able to deliver NHL GameCenter Live and NHL Vault to Roku's consumer base and significantly broaden the availability of our products to our fans in the United States."
