Notre Dame announced recently that NBC Sports Network will become a partner in broadcasting the team’s home hockey games exclusively once they move to Hockey East in 2013, meanwhile, many have been speculating that the network will start airing hockey games as soon as this season.
It appears that will indeed come to pass, as VERSUS (which will be the NBC Sports Network on January 2nd) will make it’s NCAA Hockey debut no later than December 31st (while still being called VERSUS) when Notre Dame hosts Boston University, according to the CCHA’s television schedule. One other Notre Dame home game, against CCHA opponent Michigan, is also slated to air on what will then be NBCSN A quick perusal of all the conference websites shows no other scheduled games as of yet, but one would think that VERSUS plans to add a Friday night NCAA game (like the one on January 20th) as it plans to add a new edition of NHL Overtime to the night come January, creating another full hockey night on the network.
Current VERSUS NCAA Hockey Schedule
December 31, 7:00 p.m. – Boston U. vs. Notre Dame
January 20, 7:30 p.m. – Michigan vs. Notre Dame
