NHL Network Producing Its Own Version of Hard Knocks

The NHL Network is working with the New Jersey Devils on a training camp-based reality series. Behind the Glass: New Jersey Devils Training Camp will be the network’s first take on the format made popular by NFL Films and HBO with the series Hard Knocks. 

Behind the Glass debuts the final week of September, but NHL Network has already dropped a trailer for the series.

The series will be constructed similarly to the familiar Hard Knocks formula. There will be storylines focused on the fringe guys that may or not make the roster, as well as extended looks at the training camp routines of established stars like Taylor Hall and Brian Boyle.

“We’re excited to partner with the Devils and NHL Network on this all-new series that will uncover compelling stories, on and off the ice, and take fans places that cameras have rarely been allowed. We can’t wait for our fans to be in the room when final roster decisions are being made,” NHL Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President Steve Mayer said in a press release.
