Sharks, Bettman Reach Out To Comcast To Rework Local TV Deal With 14 Years Remaining

PARTING WAYS: In San Jose, David Pollak reports Sharks TV analyst Drew Remenda “won't be returning to his spot in the broadcast booth next season” after 13 seasons with the club. Remenda yesterday said, "They decided not to renew my contract. It wasn't because of anything I did or anything wrong. It was explained to me they wanted to take the broadcast in a different direction. Honestly, we parted amicably." Pollak notes Remenda was “popular with fans” and had a “league-wide following thanks to satellite packages that carried NHL games to outside markets” (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 6/18).
