|Country of origin||Canada|
|Original channel||NHL Network|
NHL Tonight (formerly NHL on the Fly) is the flagship show on the NHL Network in Canada and the United States. The show made its debut under its current title in December of 2011. It airs nightly at 10:00 pm through out the NHL season carrying highlights from all of the days games and includes live “look ins” of any west coast games still in progress.
The show airs immediately after NHL on the Fly, the networks in game studio show with live “look ins” of all current games, and was previously entitled NHL on the Fly: Final. It used to last either 30 or 60 minutes depending on the amount of games that night, but in its current incarnation the show is an hour long, no matter how many games are played that evening. It should not be confused with ESPN's National Hockey Night which ended after the 2003-2004 NHL season.
The show was formerly simulcast occasionally on TSN for the national audience when the channel aired regional Toronto Maple Leafs action in Ontario. TSN no longer airs regional-only games of this nature.
As of the beginning of the 2007–08 NHL season, the NHL Network is now available in the United States.
