ESPN is the network that will be broadcasting the World Cup of Hockey, so get ready for the old NHL on ESPN theme and the feelings of nostalgia that comes with it.

The World Cup of Hockey kicks off on September 17th at 3:30 Eastern with the USA taking on Europe (aka guys whose countries don't have enough players for an entire team). ESPN will broadcast at least 16 games on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNEWS. The Ocho will be showing collegiate bowling.

Here's the full schedule. All times Eastern:
