BOSTON (AP) -- The NHL and NBC are extending their television contract through the 2010-11 season.

The two sides announced the agreement Wednesday. The revenue-sharing deal between the league and network started in January 2006.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman says the NHL and NBC "are building an audience, are building momentum and are perfectly positioned to continue growing the game."
