Hockey East welcomes CBS College Sports as a national TV partner

WAKEFIELD, Mass. - Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna and CBS College Sports Network Executive Vice President and General Manager Steve Herbst announced on Wednesday, a multi-year partnership with the network beginning for the upcoming 2010-2011 season.

The network will broadcast eight Hockey East regular-season contests, plus two road games vs. CCHA opponents in non-conference action. All 10 games will be broadcast in High Definition (HD) by the network.

"We are thrilled to have CBS College Sports Network back on board in the Hockey East family and are excited to showcase the league across the country," said Bertagna. "They have been tremendous in welcoming us back to their network."

"Hockey East is an elite conference, and we're excited to broadcast their teams, rivalries and traditions throughout the season and for years to come," said Herbst. "We look forward to a great season and providing fans a compelling line-up of Hockey East games."

CBS College Sports Network's coverage will commence in the opening weekend with New Hampshire at Miami University on Oct. 8th in Oxford, Ohio. Maine will play at Michigan State in East Lansing the following weekend on Oct. 15 at Munn Ice Arena. The first contest broadcast from New England will be on Oct. 22 at Alfond Arena, as the Black Bears face-off against WCHA foe North Dakota. The network will also broadcast the BC-BU home and home series on Dec. 3 and 4 in Boston.

CBS College Sports Network's Hockey East broadcast team includes play-by-play announcer Eric Frede and analyst Dave Starman.
