The NCAA’s Frozen Four is a great treat for hockey fans, but for some, it’s a tragically small taste of another puck-related world. If you want more, you’re in luck; NBC Sports Group will begin carrying college hockey games on Dec. 31.
That first game (12th-ranked* Boston University at fourth-ranked Notre Dame) will take place on Versus while the remaining 15 games will be televised under the NBC Sports Network banner. Here’s the full coverage schedule, including the Hockey East Tournament.
