Frozen Four championship back on ESPN; semifinal games both to air on ESPN2

For the ninth year in a row, ESPN networks will show all 12 games in the 2013 NCAA Division I men’s regional and semifinal rounds live, as well as the three Frozen Four games from Pittsburgh.

Both Frozen Four semifinal games will air on ESPN2 (only one was on ESPN2 in 2012, the other was on ESPNU) with the championship airing on ESPN, as opposed to 2012 when it was on ESPN2.

All of ESPN’s NCAA hockey coverage is available at and on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app.

ESPN has aired games from the men’s bracket since 1980 and extended its contract last year to televise the entire men’s tournament through 2024.
