Congrats To Rick Jeanneret And Roy MacGregor

Rick Jeanneret, TV voice of the Buffalo Sabres, today was named the Foster Hewitt Award winner and Roy MacGregor of the Globe and Mail is the Elmer Ferguson recipient.

Both are well deserving of the awards and they have provided me with many words, both spoken and written that I will never forget.

I’ve been a Sabres fan for over 25 years, and from his time on the radio as the compliment to the late Ted Darling, to his time on TV RJ has been a part of all of them. I think I can speak for all Sabres fans when I say his voice means the world to us, and this honor is well deserved

Totally agree Kaygee830, Myself a Sabres fan since thier beginning from the AHL in 1970. A class organization formed with GM and coach Punch Imlach. RJ is the best . He could put you on the edge of your seat with his calls, especially in his radio days. I had the pleasure to meet him and have a picture taken when he was in Raleigh, NC with the road crew in 2010. I will treasure it.
Congratulations RJ. Well deserved.
