Are collage games and regional leagues shown on the sports package? I've had center ice for years, but I'm thinking this year I'm making the switch to watch the junior leagues regardless of what the NHL does. Any one know what the coverage is like?

The NCHC was formed after it was announced Penn State was going Div I hockey and the formation of a new college hockey conference, the Big Ten.
The CBS Sports Network has agreed to a multi-year agreement with the new National Collegiate Hockey Conference and will be the exclusive national television partner for the conference starting with the 2013-14 season.
The agreement is for a minimum of 18 conference games, including the NCHC’s semifinal and championship games.
Currently, CBS Sports Network covers Atlantic Hockey, CCHA, ECAC, Hockey East and WCHA teams.
There were a lot of college games on DirecTV last season. Hockey East alone had over 30 games on NESN, NBCSN, CBSCS and the NHL Network. The Fox station out of Detroit covered a number of CCHA games and the one out of Minneapolis covered some CCHA and WCHA games. And there were others.
