TSN Broadcasting 37 NCAA Hockey Games This Season Including Frozen Four

ncaa-hockeyIn previous seasons, the only college hockey TSN has broadcast was the NCAA Frozen Four — and that was usually on tape delay. This year though, beginning this past weekend, TSN will broadcast 37 games in total which includes the eastern division playoffs and all the action of the Frozen Four championship. Details from the release follow.

“This partnership will allow TSN to deliver Canadian fans unprecedented access to the excitement of NCAA Hockey,” said Mike Snee, Executive Director, College Hockey Inc. “Canadians have always had a strong presence in college hockey and currently make up 30% of all Division I players. TSN will provide fans in Canada the chance to see for themselves why so many skilled Canadian hockey players are choosing college hockey, and why NCAA Hockey is the fastest growing development path to professional hockey.”

With live coverage of NCAA Hockey all season long, TSN’s five feeds shine the spotlight on the game’s next generation of star players, among them Boston University centre Jack Eichel and Boston College defenceman Noah Hanifin, as well as the best college hockey teams from across the United States, including the #1-ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers and the 2014 FROZEN FOUR champion Union Dutchmen.

In addition to the network’s live broadcast coverage, TSN delivers news updates and analysis of NCAA Hockey on multiple platforms including TIM HORTONS THAT’S HOCKEY, SPORTSCENTRE, and TSN.ca.

The full schedule is below and subject to change. All times Eastern.
