Legalized sports betting could net NHL $216 million annually by DAVID DANZIS
Legalized sports betting could increase annual revenue for the National Hockey League by $216 million, according to a recent study from Nielsen Sports.
The study, commissioned by the American Gaming Association, concluded that widely available, legal, regulated sports betting could benefit the NHL’s bottom line. The league could generate new revenue from betting operators on advertising, data and sponsorships as well as increased consumption of the league’s media and products, according to the AGA.
