TORONTO - The iconic "Hockey Night in Canada" show is getting an expensive new home.

Rogers Sportsnet unveiled its new $4.5-million Hockey Central studio on Monday. The flashy, modern studio will make its debut Oct. 8 when the NHL season opens and will anchor Rogers' NHL broadcast package, which includes "Hockey Night in Canada."

The studio, located on the 10th floor of the CBC broadcast centre in downtown Toronto, is 1,022 square metres and contains nine separate sets. Features include a rotating anchor desk and a high-resolution monitor measuring 3.3 metres by 11.5 metres

The space was designed by Jack Morton PDG, the company that created the sets for Canada's Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver and 2012 Summer Games in London.

"Our hosts and commentators gasped when they saw the studio in action for the first time, and we're confident fans will as well," said Gord Cutler, Rogers' senior vice-president of NHL production. "It's cutting edge and allows us to showcase the game in ways never seen before that will keep fans on the edge of their seats."
