from Ken Schott of the Daily Gazette,
Earlier this week, the Big Ten announced which college hockey game would be televised in the conference’s inaugural season.
What caught the attention of most college hockey fans wasn’t the 27 games the Big Ten Network will televise, which includes many double-headers on Friday nights.
Rather, it was the following paragraph: “ESPN networks, home of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Championships in Philadelphia, will air an additional seven contests, beginning on Friday, Nov. 29, when Minnesota will play host to Wisconsin to open the inaugural Big Ten regular season. Faceoff for that game is scheduled for 5 p.m. on ESPNU. ESPN will conclude its slate of Big Ten games on Friday, March 14, when Minnesota visits Michigan at 6:30 p.m. on ESPNEWS.”
from the Big Ten Network,
BTN will provide unprecedented coverage of men’s ice hockey in 2013-14, the inaugural Big Ten Hockey season, including eight straight weeks of “Frozen Friday” doubleheaders in January and February and the 2014 Hockey City Classic at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
BTN also will televise the entire Big Ten Hockey Tournament, set for March 20-22, 2014, at Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minn. Men’s Ice Hockey on BTN is presented by Buffalo Wild Wings.
At 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 11, prior to the season opener between Penn State and Army, BTN will air a 30-minute Big Ten Hockey Preview Show to highlight the season’s key storylines, players and matchups. Beginning Jan. 10, “Frozen Fridays” also will include pregame, intermission and postgame reports.
