Beginning November 3, USCHO will present the fourth season of the Women’s Game of the Week, the only weekly national Internet broadcast for women’s hockey. Fans will be able to access the live and archived video feeds available through the USCHO women’s page.
The 2007-08 season will combine the past, present, and future of women’s hockey to provide unprecedented global coverage of the sport. The NCAA portion of the schedule will feature premier Division I and III regular-season matchups, and postseason coverage including the 2008 Frozen Four in Duluth, Minnesota. In addition, the Game of the Week is proud to introduce exclusive video coverage of past college standouts in the inaugural season of the CWHL as well as the new season of the WWHL. The schedule will conclude next April with coverage of the 2008 IIHF Women’s World Championships from Harbin, China in partnership with USA Hockey.
The Game of the Week is once again proud to offer a star-studded lineup of guest color analysts drawn from the ranks of the sport’s alumni. Former college greats who have appeared on the program include Patty Kazmaier Award winners Angela Ruggiero (Harvard ’04), A.J. Mleczko (Harvard ’99) and Ali Brewer (Brown ’00), as well as former Olympians Colleen Coyne (New Hampshire ’93), Natalie Darwitz (Minnesota ’07), Molly Engstrom (Wisconsin ’05), Sara DeCosta-Hayes (Providence ’00), Tricia Dunn-Luoma (New Hampshire ’96), Jamie Hagerman (Harvard ’03) and Carla MacLeod (Wisconsin ’05).
Game of the Week founder Brian Schulz will return for his fourth season of play-by-play. Schulz called men’s and women’s hockey games for Harvard University from 1999-2001, and also broadcast the 2001 and 2004 World Women’s Hockey Championships.
The broadcast schedule will begin Saturday, November 3 with live video coverage of Wisconsin Stevens-Point at Gustavus Adolphus. Specific CWHL and World Championship games to be announced at a later date.
