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

30 Hours of Action in 54-Hour Span on ESPNU; Michigan State Head Coach as Guest Studio Analyst

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.

The 2013 tournament bracket was announced on the NCAA Hockey Championship Selection Show, Sunday, March 24 on ESPNU with Quinnipiac, Minnesota, UMass Lowell and Notre Dame selected as No. 1 seeds and each Regional matchup revealed.

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 Sunday, plus a tripleheader on Saturday. In total, ESPNU will air 30 hours of game action within a 54-hour span. During that time, hockey analyst Dave Starman will be joined in studio with Michigan State head coach Tom Anastos as an ESPNU guest analyst.

ESPN's coverage continues in April with 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.
