AWARD WINNING HOCKEY BROADCASTER CHRIS CUTHBERT JUMPS SHIP

One of the most recognizable names in hockey broadcasting in Canada has decided to leave his current job to take one with the competition. Chris Cuthbert, who has spent the last 15 years at TSN, has taken a new role with Sportsnet and Hockey Night in Canada as it prepares for the return of the NHL this summer.

“A true master of his craft, Chris’s voice has been at the centre of some of the country’s greatest hockey moments,” said Bart Yabsley, President of Sportsnet. “Chris’s stellar career achievements, positive attitude as a person and popularity with audiences make him a tremendous addition to our broadcast team and reinforces our commitment to delivering world-class hockey coverage across Canada. Along with hockey fans coast-to-coast, we look forward to the return of the NHL and Chris’s debut on Sportsnet.”

In 1998, Cuthbert won a Gemini Award for Best Sports Broadcaster in Canada. In 2004, he was recognized by Sports Media Canada as Sportscaster of the Year. In 2006, Cuthbert received another Gemini, this time with his TSN CFL analyst, Glen Suitor, for Best Sports Play-by-Play or Analyst. In 2014, Cuthbert was inducted into the media wing of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.



As the NHL’s return to play approaches, more details on Sportsnet’s NHL broadcast team and coverage will be announced.
