ALBANY, N.Y. — The final ECAC Hockey game broadcast this season under the new NBC Sports Network umbrella will air Friday, February 17 as Dartmouth visits Yale at Ingalls Rink, in New Haven, Conn.
Friday’s televised game between the Big Green and the Bulldogs will air live on NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus) at 7:30 p.m. with Ron Vaccaro, current Bulldogs football broadcaster and NBC Universal Sports and Olympic Researcher, and former NHL player, coach and scout and prominent hock-
ey analyst Pierre McGuire calling the action. The network reaches more than 75 million homes across the United States.
This will be the second time both Dartmouth and Yale will be featured in a game on the NBC Sports Network college hockey schedule this season. The Big Green edged Rensselaer on the road, 4-1 on Jan. 6 and the Bulldogs dropped a hard fought contest, 4-3 on the road to rival Harvard on Jan. 27 at Bright Hockey Center. The historic rivalry – Harvard-Yale match-up Jan. 27 – has drawn the best numbers to date in terms of viewers on the NBC Sports Network college hockey schedule thus far this season.
The college hockey telecasts will be produced by the same Emmy Award-winning team that oversees all of the NHL games for the NBC Sports Group, led by Sam Flood, executive producer for NBC Sports.
