20 games as well as the Hockey East quarters, semis, and finals.

While the NHL decides its new CBA, college hockey will be starting on time and this year, NBC Sports Network will be bringing you 20 games worth of action.

This year’s schedule features matchups from Hockey East, the ECAC, CCHA and WCHA. The season kicks off with the Icebreaker Tournament from Kansas City, Missouri in October and closes out with the Hockey East tournament including the quarters, semis, and finals in March.

As for the schedule, soak it in as our cameras will be heading to campuses across America including legendary venues like Lynah Rink in Ithaca (January 25), Hobey Baker Rink in Princeton (January 11), Alfond Arena in Orono (February 15), and Magness Rink in Denver (three times).

Defending national champions Boston College will be featured in a monster weekend pair with rival Boston University on November 30 and December 1.

    No Minnrsota Golden Gophers…. You just lost lots of viewers from a state that loves there hockey… Good choice

      Any NBCSN Gophers game in MN would be blacked out since the games are on FSN, so no, they didn’t lose any viewers from that state.

      Not to mention a bunch of the games being on Big Ten Network. Spoken like someone who hasn’t watched a lot of college hockey on TV before.


      a concerned Badger fan.

    No thanks if the NHL strikes, I’m done with hockey.

      thats the sign of someone who isn’t a true hockey fan

    When does ahl on NBC schedule come out?

  5. jimw81 - Sep 12, 2012 at 12:45 AM

    I think Penn State starts it’s hockey program this year. I think they start in div 1 league then go over to BIG10

    Couldn’t choose one of 5 MN teams for a single game? Interesting…

    Very disappointed to only see two University of Denver games. But I feel worse for Minnesota, they got robbed. Why so many Nebraska-Omaha games? (yes I know one of them is against DU)

    No love for Michigan? WTF?
