Big night on Tuesday on a variety of fronts — NBCSN will begin coverage of the ’16-17 campaign with a preseason broadcast between Carolina and Buffalo, a game that holds special significance for the town of Marquette, MI.

Back in the  spring, Marquette’s Lakeview Arena was named the Kraft Hockeyville winner for 2016 and, along with $150,000 in arena upgrades, won the right to host an NHL exhibition game — tonight’s exhibition game, which will mark Jack Eichel‘s preseason debut after starring with Team North America at the World Cup of Hockey.

You can catch the game on NBCSN starting at 7 p.m. ET, or watch online or via NBC Sports’ Live Extra.
