USCHO Announces 2009-10 Women’s Game of the Week Schedule

Beginning September 25, USCHO will present the sixth 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 2009-10 broadcast schedule will feature premier Division I and III regular-season matchups from the NCAA ranks and postseason coverage culminating in the 2009 Frozen Four at Ridder Arena in Minneapolis. The new season will also include exclusive coverage of the 2009 4 Nations Cup from Vierumaki, Finland as well as coverage of select contests from the Qwest pre-Olympic Tour, all 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 A.J. Mleczko (Harvard ’99), Angela Ruggiero (Harvard ’04), 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 sixth 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.
