Chris Cuthbert leaves TSN for Sportsnet

Veteran sports commentator Chris Cuthbert is joining Sportsnet as an NHL play-by-play analyst.

Cuthbert had been at TSN since 2005, where he was the network’s lead CFL commentator as well as an NHL play-by-play voice.

Cuthbert worked on CBC’s “Hockey Night in Canada” prior to joining TSN. He started in 1984 anchoring regional western games and rose to be one of the broadcaster’s premier commentators.

He also called Sidney Crosby’s championship-winning goal for Canada at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, and was a play-by-play commentator for the 2018 Winter Games.

The 62-year-old from Brampton. Ont., is a five-time Canadian Screen Award winner for his broadcasting.
