Video: Rogers NHL Referee Camera Highlights

The NHL has recently partnered with GoPro Inc., which allows the league to use the company’s cutting-edge portable cameras during games. This partnership aims to bring fans closer to the action, integrating unique point-of-view (POV) footage into live broadcasts.

It remains unclear if GoPros were specifically used in yesterday’s games, yet the footage suggests a high possibility. These new camera angles debuted prominently in two notable games. They appeared first in the season opener between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens and again in the late game between the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames.

Above, a video compilation showcases several highlights captured by these cameras. These include a particularly immersive GIF from a scrum in front of goaltender Carey Price, seen from the referee’s perspective. This GIF provides a firsthand look at the game’s intensity, offering fans a rarely seen angle.

This innovative approach to using GoPro technology in NHL games is revolutionizing how fans interact with hockey. By delivering views from players’ and officials’ perspectives, the broadcasts allow fans to appreciate the game’s speed and physicality from new vantage points. This makes the viewing experience far more dynamic and engaging.

As the NHL season progresses, viewers can expect to see more of these engaging angles. These will provide deeper insights into the sport’s nuances and enhance the overall viewing experience. The NHL’s collaboration with GoPro is set to change how we watch hockey, turning each game into an immersive event.
