NBC Sports Network May Have Separate Contract with Notre Dame Hockey

From Mike McMahon of the Eagle-Tribune, in a story about the Fighting Irish’s decision to join Hockey East:
Notre Dame’s decision was based largely on television. Soon, each conference in the country will announce its own television deal with NBC Sports Network (what Versus will turn into in January) to air college hockey games nationally. Notre Dame has reached its own agreement with NBC Sports to air its games, separately from the conference contract.
The NCHC, according to sources, was reluctant to go along with Notre Dame’s television wishes.
