New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The "Wednesday Night Hockey" broadcast of the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on Sportsnet and NBCSN opened with a special performance by the Randy Bachman All-Star Band presented by Honda featuring Doc Walker and Terra Lightfoot. Announced yesterday by the National Hockey League (NHL), the pre-game performance on the Honda Stage outside Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg aired live at 7 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. local on Sportsnet in Canada and NBCSN in the U.S.

Sportsnet and NBCSN captured the scene in Winnipeg during their live pre-game, on-site coverage which started at 6 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. local. A limited number of exclusive passes were distributed to Jets fans, rewards members and corporate partners. The broadcast party was the inaugural event in True North Square's public plaza.

Immediately following coverage of the Maple Leafs-Jets game, NBC Sports' "Wednesday Night Hockey" doubleheader continued with the Tampa Bay Lightning-Colorado Avalanche game while Sportsnet presents the Vancouver Canucks-Vegas Golden Knights matchup.

Widely regarded as the "architect of Canadian rock 'n' roll," Bachman's list of unforgettable anthems turned pop-culture touchstones includes such hits as "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet," "Takin' Care of Business," "Looking Out for #1" and "Let It Ride" for Bachman-Turner Overdrive; and "American Woman," "No Sugar Tonight," "Undun" and "These Eyes" with The Guess Who.

Since his first hit in 1965 with "Shaking All Over," Bachman has sold more than 40 million records and earned more than 120 gold and platinum album/singles awards around the world for performing and producing, and his songwriting has garnered him the coveted no. 1 spot on radio playlists in more than 20 countries. He remains one of the few to have been inducted twice into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

With more than 20 Top 10 singles in total, Winnipeggers Doc Walker are one of the most recognized Canadian country acts of the past two decades. The group has received multiple Canadian Country Music Awards, including Fans' Choice, Group or Duo of the Year, CMT Video of the Year, Single of the Year, and Country Music Program or Special of the Year. In addition, Doc Walker has been nominated for several JUNO Awards for Country Album of the Year, including a win in 2009 for the album Beautiful Life.
Juno-nominated Canadian musician and singer-songwriter Terra Lightfoot has released four albums and has toured extensively in the U.S., Canada and the UK.
