The long-awaited NBC Sports Network (f.k.a. Versus) college hockey broadcast schedule has finally been released. The NBC Sports Group announced a 16-game college hockey broadcast schedule, with 11 of those games on Friday nights this winter.
Good news for Eagles fans is that one of those 16 games will include Boston College. BC's February 10 trip to Burlington to take on the Vermont Catamounts will be televised on NBC Sports Network starting at 7:30 pm. That game will be the first half of a NBCSN college hockey doubleheader as Minnesota faces Denver at 10 p.m.
In addition, NBCSN will also broadcast this year's Hockey East Tournament. The network will broadcast one of the Hockey East Tournament Quarterfinals games on March 9, starting at 7:30 p.m (though the specific matchup televised is still TBD). NBCSN will also broadcast both HEA Semifinal Games at the Garden on March 16 as well as the Hockey East Tournament final the following night.
Other upcoming televised games include this Saturday's game at UMass (CBS3), the 11/13 game vs. Boston U. (CBSC), 11/18 game at Notre Dame (CBSC) and the 12/2 game against BU (CBSC).
