from the CBC.ca:

CBC'S Hockey Night in Canada heads to the Motor City to bring exclusive live coverage of Steve Yzerman Night, as No. 19's legendary jersey is lifted to the rafters in Joe Louis Arena, followed by a match-up featuring the Red Wings and the Anaheim Ducks.

The only thing is that the ceremony starts at 6:30 and the broadcast doesn't even start until 7. Oh well

Only on because he's Canadian. Plus, CBC probably knows that Detroit gets CBC's signal.

I'm a bit shocked that HNiC would cover the Yzerman retirement party night. They generally steer clear of American NHL coverage. I love HNiC, so don't take this the wrong way but they are very Canadian NHL bias. I thought it was Hockey Night in Canada...not Canadian Hockey Night in Canada.

Hockey Night in Canada does not always cover games played in Canada, but its regular season programming usually only covers:

a) games featuring at least one Canadian-based team; and

b) games played on Saturday night.

It is very exceptional for the CBC to broadcast a regular season Tuesday night game that also features two American-based teams.

That being said, with Detroit being a suburb of Canada....

Yes, it appears that they did. It was tape delayed by 20 or so minutes. The actual live ceremony ended before 8pm

Watched my first HNIC back in 1961 (age 7) when my older brother and I got a brand new 19 inch B/W TV for Christmas. I wasn't interested in Hockey, but I had no choice (since he was older than me). Now I am fortunate to have seen the likes of all the greats of 1950s/1960s hockey playing back then.
