Play-by-Play By Ex-Player

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

Broadcast booths throughout the NHL are chock-a-block full of former players working as colour commentators, but Randy Moller is taking one giant leap for microphone mankind by actually calling the games for the Florida Panthers this season.

Moller, who grew up in Red Deer, was the 11th overall player picked in the ‘81 draft, going to the Quebec Nordiques. The defenceman played more than 800 NHL games, winding up his career in Florida in the mid 90s.

He’s worked as a host and colour guy on the radio games as the Panthers’ VP of broadcasting and will now be the first former player to call games full-time.

Minnesota Twins Justin Morneau Makes NHL2K8

From the Star Tribune,

Twins first baseman Justin Morneau thought it was pretty cool getting picked for the cover of a baseball video game, but now things have reached a whole new level.

Morneau is featured as a goaltender in 2K Sports’ latest release, “NHL2K8.”

Morneau, a New Westminster, British Columbia, native who played junior hockey in Canada before signing with the Twins, is wearing blue and green Vancouver Canucks gear in the hockey game, though he’s listed as a free agent.  “My buddies at home are going to be more excited about that than being on the cover of the baseball game,” said Morneau, who is pictured in his Twins uniform swinging a bat for 2K Sports’ “The Bigs.”
