TORONTO -- The NHL says it has reached a 12-year, $5.2 billion agreement with Rogers Communications for the league's Canadian broadcast and multimedia rights.

The league says the deal gives Rogers national rights to all NHL games, including the playoffs and Stanley Cup Final, on all of its platforms in all languages.
The deal, subject to approval by the NHL Board of Governors, will begin with the 2014-15 season and run through 2025-26. The Board of Governors will next meet Dec. 9-10 in Pebble Beach, Calif.
The league says in a statement that the agreement is the largest media rights deal in its history.
