Update! COVID-19 Related Postponements

Due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic many of our partners have had to make difficult decisions regarding when to begin their 2020-21 seasons and/or whether to play at all. We will update this notice throughout the season as more information becomes available.

- The WSHL announced in May that they will be going dormant for the entire 2020-21 season, but they have plans to return to the ice in Fall 2021.

- Throughout the summer many of our collegiate partners in consultation with or at the behest of their schools have made the difficult decision to forego playing games this Fall. In the winter, some collegiate partners announced that they will not take the ice at all until Fall 2021 at the earliest. We will provide updates ASAP for each partner's plans to return to play.

Central Michigan Univ.

Reduced Quality Notice: Partners with Low Bandwidth & Other Limitations

Due to a lack of available bandwidth at their home facilities, the following partners will produce reduced quality live streams on a regular basis. Please be aware that broadcasts from these facilities may experience picture freezing or drop out if the limited bandwidth is further compromised in any way:


Additionally, the following partners who film their home and (some or all) road games may produce reduced quality live streams when broadcasting from opponents' facilities if the available bandwidth is not sufficient:

John Carroll University
San Jose State University
Slippery Rock University
University of Alabama
University of Kentucky

All games will be recorded at full resolution and will be posted on-demand ASAP after each game's conclusion. If there are any significant variations from these established limitations - including live broadcast cancellation and/or Video-On-Demand Only recordings - we will post separate notices ASAP each week. Thank you for your understanding and for your continued enjoyment of Black Dog Hockey broadcasts!
