National NHL broadcasts on Monday nights will air exclusively on Amazon Prime Video for the next two seasons, the technology company jointly announced with Rogers Communications on Thursday.

All national regular-season games on those evenings will stream on "Prime Monday Night Hockey," marking the NHL's first exclusive national broadcast deal with a digital-only streaming service in Canada.

Prime Video has partnered with Rogers since the start of this season, when Sportsnet launched the streaming service's channels north of the border. The NHL has worked with Amazon Web Services on in-game analytics and video highlights since 2021.

Rogers remains the NHL's primary rightsholder for national broadcasts in Canada. The telecommunications corporation's 12-year deal with the NHL will expire in 2025.

Amazon has secured the rights to numerous sports properties in recent years, including Thursday Night Football, NASCAR, the New York Yankees, the WNBA, and UEFA Champions League broadcasts in the United Kingdom.

It has also produced several original series on hockey including "All or Nothing: Toronto Maple Leafs" and "Saving Sakic."

Sportsnet has aired national Monday night NHL games since 2014-15.
