“The Hockey News has long been the trusted leader among hockey fans for the best news and analysis," said BetMGM chief revenue officer Matt Prevost. "They’re an ideal partner for BetMGM to reach one of the most passionate and knowledgeable fan bases in all of sports."
W. Graeme Roustan, owner and publisher of The Hockey News, added: “When looking for the best sports betting partner for our readership, trust and brand positioning were key factors.
“BetMGM is a trusted, well-known operator and we couldn’t be more excited to have found a long-term partner for our sports betting-related content.”
