NBC announced a few changes to their coverage of the NHL this season, and the most notable name missing from the list is Mike Milbury.
In his place, former Red Wings and Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock will join Patrick Sharp and others for pre and in-game commentary.
The news that Milbury is gone means we won’t have to listen to him whine about the lack of fighting any more. Besides…
Eddie Olczyk will appear in both studio and return to his color commentating role. NBC did not name a firm replacement for Doc Emrick to primarily work with Edzo on national broadcasts. John Forslund will call the Blackhawks’ season opener at Tampa with Olczyk on Wednesday night.
