2013 NCAA Hockey Regionals Live Across ESPN Networks: Frozen Four Set for ESPN2

30 Hours of Action in 54-Hour Span – Including a Double and Tripleheader – on ESPNU

For the ninth consecutive year, ESPN networks will present all 12 games in the 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Regional and Semi-Regional rounds live from four regional sites, in addition to the Frozen Four and Championship matchups from Pittsburgh, Pa. Every game will air over ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU or on ESPN3 and local syndication. The games carried over ESPN3 and syndication will also re-air on ESPNU.

As in previous years, the 2013 tournament brackets will be announced on the NCAA Hockey Championship Selection Show, slated to air Sunday, March 24 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPNU. ESPN’s 24-hour college sports network will air more than eight consecutive hours of non-stop college hockey coverage each day during Regionals – Friday, Saturday and Sunday – with a doubleheader of live action Friday and a tripleheader on Saturday. In total, ESPNU will air 30 hours of game action within a 54-hour span.

ESPN’s coverage continues in April with both Frozen Four games airing on ESPN2 and the Championship airing on ESPN. All of ESPN’s NCAA hockey coverage will also be available on computers at WatchESPN.com and on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app live.

ESPN has aired games from the men’s championship since 1980 and extended its commitment to the NCAA last year to include the airing of the entire Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Championship through 2024.
