ESPN will air all 12 games of the Regional and Semi-Regional rounds of the 2013 NCAA Hockey Tournament. The coverage will include 30 hours of action in a 54-hour span during the first weekend of the tournament.
The network has broadcast games from the tournament every year since 1980, and last year, renewed its commitment to include airing the entirety of the tournament across its platform. The Denver Pioneers have participated in 11 of those televised tournaments, including three Frozen Four appearances and two NCAA Tournament championships. Overall, the Pioneers have captured seven national titles, played in 14 Frozen Fours and appeared 22 NCAA Tournaments.
The 2013 Frozen Four will be shown on ESPN2, with the championship game slated to be televised on ESPN. The rest of the tournament action will be available on either ESPNU or ESPN3 and local syndication, with all replays of the ESPN3/syndicated games to be shown on ESPNU.
