College hockey to see increased television slate

With or without NHL hockey, the good folks at NBC Sports Network revealed its college hockey broadcasting schedule on Tuesday afternoon, a slate which includes 24 regular-season matchups.

Coverage begins on October 12 with the Icebreaker Tournament from Kansas City, featuring Notre Dame, Maine, Army and Nebraska-Omaha.

The defending national champion Boston College Eagles will make only two regular-season appearances, in a home-and-home series with rival Boston University on November 30 and December 1.

NBCSN is the exclusive home for the Hockey East playoffs. The conference has boasted five NCAA men's title winners since the turn of the millennium: BC (2001, '08, '10, '12) and BU (2009).
