The ECAC announced its Division I men’s hockey television package today. The package delivers seven regular-season and four postseason games and features all 12 teams in the ECAC. The package will once again appear on NESN with Empire also picking up coverage.
The premiere of the telecast will be the rematch of last season’s ECAC championship game as Rensselaer hosts St. Lawrence on January 13.
The following week will feature a pair of travel partners squaring off in Central New York as Lynah Rink and Cornell entertain Colgate.
Vermont will host Union the following weekend, and then Princeton visits Clarkson in a rematch of last season’s quarterfinal series.
The next weekend features Dartmouth welcoming Brown, after which St. Lawrence hosts Colgate two weekends later. Those teams are the only two to make two appearances on the package.
The regular season ends with Harvard hosting Yale, followed by a first-round tournament game; the following weekend the semifinals and the championship game will be televised live from Lake Placid.
