USCHO Announces 2008-09 Women’s Game of the Week Broadcast Schedule

Beginning this fall, USCHO will present the fifth 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 and audio feeds available through the USCHO women’s page.

The 2008-09 season will again span multiple leagues and events throughout the women’s hockey world. The NCAA portion of the schedule will include premier Division I and III regular-season matchups, and postseason coverage including the 2009 Frozen Four in Boston, Massachusetts. The Game of the Week will again feature former NCAA stars in the second season of the CWHL as well as the new season of the WWHL. The schedule will also include exclusive complete coverage of the 4 Nations Cup from Lake Placid, New York 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 fifth 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, 2004 and 2008 World Women’s Hockey Championships.
