All throughout the college hockey season, CBS Sports Network (company plug: Check your local listings!) will have the college game covered. This upcoming Friday the network will have the Boston College-Notre Dame battle. Here is the season schedule (.pdf file).
The coverage will also include a college hockey roundtable, centering on issues within not only the college game, but how it relates to the NHL. In the most recent edition, the panelists discussed the communication between the NHL and NCAA.
Hosted by Adam Zucker, the members of the panel are Boston University coach Jack Parker, University of Denver coach George Gwozdecky, former Notre Dame coach and current VP of Maple Leafs operations Dave Poulin and Minnesota athletic director Joel Maturi.
College hockey is often underappreciated in its role of developing players for the NHL. The junior leagues like the OHL and WHL seem to get a lot of the focus, but the NCAA is a big part of player development, too. So the communication between the two has to be clear.
The idea of the NHL learning from the NCAA is also broached when Gwozdecky brings up the NHL's decision to remove the two-line pass, something that hadn't existed in college.
