COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Continuing its partnership since 2014-15, the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) and FOX Sports North have unveiled the NCHC games that will be televised on the network in 2018-19. A total of 12 NCHC games will air on FOX Sports North this season.

For the fifth straight season, FOX Sports North will televise select home contests from St. Cloud State and Minnesota Duluth across its five-state viewing region during the season. FOX Sports North (and FOX Sports North PLUS) is slated to showcase nine games from the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center in St. Cloud, and three games from AMSOIL Arena in Duluth. Two of the SCSU contests will be broadcast on FOX Sports North, while the rest will be televised on FOX Sports North PLUS.

“We’re excited to continue our great partnership with FOX Sports North,” NCHC Commissioner Josh Fenton said. “Through the partnership, our two Minnesota member schools are provided additional television distribution throughout the Upper Midwest, while allowing our many fans in the Minnesota region to enjoy the games from home.”

The first NCHC game to be broadcast on FOX Sports North takes place Friday, Oct. 19 as St. Cloud State hosts Northern Michigan of the WCHA. Minnesota Duluth’s first game on FOX Sports North is set for Friday, Nov. 30 against NCHC rival North Dakota. Seven of SCSU’s nine home games that will be televised are conference match-ups featuring Denver, Omaha (twice), Western Michigan (twice), Colorado College and UMD. The Bulldogs’ other televised games on FOX Sports North are against Omaha (Jan. 26) and Miami (Mar. 1).

On Saturday, Jan. 19, St. Cloud State will be part of FOX Sports North’s annual Hockey Day Minnesota with Western Michigan visiting the Huskies for a 6:15 p.m. CT puck drop on FOX Sports North PLUS. Closing out the NCHC on FOX Sports North schedule is an in-state battle between UMD and SCSU in St. Cloud on the final day of the regular season (Mar. 9).

The SCSU home games on FOX Sports North will be produced by the SCSU student crew of Husky Productions, which is in its 26th year of televising St. Cloud State men’s home hockey games.  Jim Rich of FOX 9 in Minneapolis will handle play-by-play duties, alongside former Minnesota Gophers All-American Pat Micheletti, who will provide analysis. UMD home games on FOX Sports North will be produced by UMD’s local TV affiliate, My9.

FOX Sports North reaches homes throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and North and South Dakota and telecasts nearly 2,600 hours of locally produced programming per year.
