Star Trek technology has come to hockey and we’re all better for it.
Utilizing several green screens and video editing software, TSN beamed up up several Team Canada players and coaches from the locker room area to safely conduct interviews during the pandemic.
“Beam me up, Scotty!” wrote a very proud TSN on Twitter.

The first interview was conducted with head coach André Tourigny.
Former Capitals defenseman Connor Carrick was bamboozled.
This was wild. https://t.co/ZMwOLfjcol

Contributor Travis Yost wants this presentation to continue even after the pandemic is over. I agree.
This should never leave our broadcasts. Just beam people up every segment. https://t.co/XQVqUvaqbH

Other than the awkward lack of eye contact, the interviews seemed natural and like they were really happening together as a group.
How cool was head coach @BearTourigny's virtual pre-game chat with @tsnjamesduthie and @TSNBobMcKenzie?#WorldJuniors | @TSNHockey https://t.co/KMjSmz6t9o
