Hockey's been on TV a lot longer, but how often? Well, you're in Canada, but in America hockey is almost never on TV. MMA is on Spike like 3-4 days a week I think, Showtime has a deal with EliteXC, and the UFC might get a deal with HBO soon. If they started to make hockey gear, even though it has a next-to-zero fan base, MMA gear from Nike might be closer than you think. Will it happen in the next couple years? Probably not, but I don't think it's too far off.
