The excitement of NCAA hockey returns to TSN for a fourth year in a row in 2017-18, beginning with three televised games this Friday night. TSN and College Hockey Inc. unveiled the network’s schedule for November and December, with more games to be added after the new year.

Friday night’s trio of games starts at 8 p.m. ET and will span three of TSN’s five channels:

  • A non-conference matchup of top-15 teams as No. 13 Harvard visits No. 7 Minnesota (8 p.m. ET, TSN5)
  • The last two NCAA champions meeting with No. 3 North Dakota visiting No. 1 Denver (9 p.m. ET, TSN3)
  • The two newest NCAA programs facing off as Arizona State welcomes Penn State to the desert (10 p.m. ET, TSN2)

“Our comprehensive broadcast partnership with TSN will once again make it possible for NCAA hockey fans in Canada to follow their favorite teams and players throughout the season,” said College Hockey Inc. Executive Director Mike Snee. “Close to 30% of NCAA players are Canadian, many of whom will be playing in the NHL in the future or representing Canada in the Olympics, World Juniors or other international tournaments.”
