A year after introducing the most expansive NCAA hockey broadcast schedule ever available in Canada, TSN will televise even more games in 2015-16. TSN and College Hockey Inc. unveiled the network’s 46-game U.S. college hockey schedule on Tuesday that features comprehensive coverage of the NCAA Tournament, the Beanpot and much more.

“TSN’s coverage of NCAA hockey generated tremendous excitement last season and we look forward to building upon that success,” said College Hockey Inc. Executive Director Mike Snee. “Nearly 30% of NCAA players are Canadian so it makes sense to provide hockey fans in Canada an opportunity to follow NCAA hockey throughout the winter. Also, having access to so many games allows young aspiring players in Canada the opportunity to see what makes the U.S. college game so special.”

“With a huge crop of emerging stars and high-performance play, NCAA Hockey is a fantastic property for Canadian hockey fans,” said Shawn Redmond, Vice-President, Programming, TSN. “We look forward to showcasing the highly-anticipated Frozen Four tournament, a great complement to our package of NCAA championships that includes NCAA March Madness and the College Football Playoff.”

TSN’s 2015-16 NCAA hockey schedule begins this week with Northeastern visiting Notre Dame on Thursday (7:30 p.m. ET, TSN2) and a rematch of the 2015 NCAA championship game with Boston University visiting Providence on Friday (6 p.m. ET, TSN2).

“The excitement of NCAA hockey, like the NHL, transcends borders,” said Craig Button, TSN Director of Scouting. “Watching NCAA hockey is a glimpse into the future of the NHL because it is a stepping stone for these players and provides fans a sneak preview of what they will see in NHL arenas for years to come.”

Highlights of TSN’s 2015-16 schedule include:

  • All 15 games in the 2016 NCAA Tournament
  • Boston’s historic Beanpot tournament between Boston College, Boston University, Harvard and Northeastern at TD Garden
  • Scheduled appearances from more than half (32) of all schools in Division I, plus others in the NCAA Tournament
  • Live coverage of the first day of the Friendship Four tournament being held in Belfast, Northern Ireland – the first NCAA hockey regular-season games held in Europe
  • Intense rivalry games including Boston College vs. Boston University, Michigan vs. Michigan State, Denver vs. Colorado College and Lake Superior State vs. Michigan Tech
  • Draft picks of all 30 NHL teams, including first-round picks from four Canadian teams: Calgary (Providence’s Mark Jankowski), Ottawa (Boston College’s Colin White), Vancouver (North Dakota’s Brock Boeser) and Winnipeg (Michigan’s Kyle Connor)

 

TSN’s full schedule showcases teams from all six NCAA Division I conferences and many of the nearly 200 NHL draft picks currently playing at the NCAA level. More than 30% of all NCAA hockey players are Canadian.
