CBS Sports Network to Air Hockey East Games

College Hockey continues it’s quest for exposure. I’ve heard rumors that an NBCSN package will launch after the name change.

Wakefield, Mass. – Hockey East and CBS Sports Network announced on Wednesday the eight-game broadcast schedule for the upcoming 2011-12 season.

 

The schedule opens with Boston College hosting WCHA foe Denver University on Friday, October 14 at Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, Mass. The next two games will feature one of the fiercest rivalries in all of college sports, as Boston College faces off against Boston University on November 13 and December 2 at Conte Forum.

 

“We are pleased to join forces once more with CBS Sports Network,” said Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna. “The need to reach a national audience is greater than ever before and we are happy to continue this partnership.”

 

CBS Sports Network will televise from Maine’s Alfond Arena on December 10, as the Black Bears host the Boston University Terriers. The Network will also air the rematch on January 28 from Agganis Arena in Boston.

 

On February 3, the Network will air UNH entertaining Providence College from the Whittemore Center in Durham. The Network schedule concludes with Vermont at Boston College in the final two games of the regular season for each school.

 

“We’re excited for another season of Hockey East action on CBS Sports Network,” said Ross Molloy, Vice President, Remote Production, CBS Sports Network. “The schedule once again features top conference games and we look forward to providing fans comprehensive coverage throughout the season, including our pregame show which originates from the site of each game.”

 

The Hockey East Association is a 10-team Division I college men’s hockey conference founded in 1984 and an eightteam Division I women’s league which began play in 2002-03. The men’s league has won seven NCAA championships in the past 19 years.
