Updated TV schedule: Three national games added to Wisconsin's hockey slate

Both of Wisconsin's road games in Ann Arbor will now be shown live on national TV - Elsa

Three games on NBC Sports Network runs Wisconsin's total of nationally televised games this season to 12.

It's not perfect, but there was positive news on the Wisconsin hockey TV front today, as NBC Sports Network announced it is adding five games, including three contests featuring the Badgers.

The three games that will appear on NBC Sports Network: Friday, Dec. 13 vs. Colorado College, Saturday, Feb. 1 at Michigan and Saturday, Feb. 15 at Ohio State.

The three games on NBC Sports Network run Wisconsin's total of nationally televised games this season to 12. Wisconsin has six games on the Big Ten Network, two on ESPN U and one on the CBS Sports Network. Fox Sports Wisconsin will also pick up the feed for one road game at both Minnesota and Michigan State, bringing Wisconsin's total TV package to 14 games.

At this point I have no idea what to expect from local TV picking up other games. Could they have been waiting for NBC to release this before they move forward? Certainly. Do I think that's the case? I have no idea.

I was told Wisconsin Public Television, which broadcasts select home games on tape delay, is still hoping to do some games this season. That said, it didn't sound like it was going to be a monumental number of games by any means.

So, this is what we've got to work with.
