Upcoming UAA-UAF hockey games will be broadcast in Southeast
JUNEAU - Hockey fans in Southeast will be able to watch Alaska's only in-state collegiate hockey rivalry on television Oct. 10-11.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks Nanooks will host the University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolves in the first two games of the Governor's Cup, the four-game series pitting Alaska's two college hockey teams against each other. The games are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks.
KTUU in Anchorage and Alaska Mobile Productions will be producing the telecasts, which will air in Southeast on KATH in Juneau and KSCT in Sitka. In Juneau, KATH can be found on broadcast channel 5 and cable channel 15.
Steve MacDonald of KTUU will handle play-by-play duties, while KTUU sports director John Carpenter will provide color and Lars Peterson will report from rinkside.
Friday night's game will be taped and aired statewide at noon Saturday. The Saturday night game will air live at 7 p.m. in Anchorage, Juneau and Sitka. In Fairbanks, the Saturday night game will be taped and shown on Sunday.
The Governor's Cup series will conclude March 6-7, 2004, when UAA hosts UAF at Sullivan Arena in Anchorage. The Alaska teams are in different conferences - UAA is in the WCHA and UAF is in the CCHA - so the Governor's Cup games are the only times they meet each season.
