NHL Big City Classic broadcasts ice hockey as cartoon

The Washington Capitals are playing the NY Rangers tonight and I’m watching the game broadcast live as a cartoon.

This article shows how it was done and how it looked.

The NHL’s Big City Greens Classic, a live 3D animated game, explained

They’re showing the game live with some of the players replaced with cartoon characters. The referee is a chicken. But they’re also taking time to explain rules and how parts of ice hockey work.

I don’t have kids but I’m completely enchanted with how much fun it is to watch hockey this way.
