Hockey East Media Day

Hockey East held its annual media day Tuesday highlighted by the pre-season coaches’ poll. Terriers were ranked third, just as they were in the writers and broadcasters poll.

The conference composite television schedule also was announced. BU is currently scheduled to appear in ten Hockey East games on national or local broadcast outlets. This schedule is likely to grow depending on additional games picked up due to the NHL lockout. In addition, several out-of-conference games are expected to be available on cable outlets. We’ll post updates, as well as details about the All-Access schedule, when they become available.
