HANOVER, N.H. - The NBC Sports Group announced its schedule of nationally-televised college hockey games for the 2012-13 season Tuesday evening. The Dartmouth men will make one appearance on that slate with a Feb. 1 match-up at Union in Schenectady, N.Y.
The meeting between the Big Green and Dutchmen on the first Friday of February will be one of 24 games broadcast on the network this upcoming season. Included in those contests will be six ECAC Hockey match-ups.
Last season, Dartmouth twice played in front of a national audience as they defeated Rensselaer on Jan. 6 and fell at Yale on Feb. 17 on NBC's newly-formed network. No other team in the league played in more nationally-broadcast regular season games than the Big Green in 2011-12.
