UW men's hockey: Fewer games on TV

The long-awaited Wisconsin men's hockey TV schedule shows fewer games on the air this season as compared with last season.

A year ago, 24 of the 36 regular season games were available on TV in some way, shape or form. This year, that number is down to 19.

Last season, 12 games were on FSN Wisconsin (10 live, two delayed). This season, eight games are scheduled for the network.

Big Ten Network showed three UW games last season (two live, one delayed). The schedule shows two live games this season.

There were 17 games on Wisconsin Public Television last season. There will be 14 this season.

WISC-TV/Ch. 3 in Madison has increased its coverage from one game last season to three this season. Those games, as well as the six scheduled for My Madison TV, may also be on local stations in other areas of the state, but those details haven't been finalized.

Here's the TV schedule:

Oct. 17, at Denver, 8:30 p.m. (FSN)
Oct. 24, vs. Minnesota, 7 p.m. (FSN)
