Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond return as the Wings TV announce crew with former Red Wings defenseman Larry Murphy sitting in for Redmond during select road games.
In addition to the local and regional coverage by Fox Sports Net and FOX2 Detroit, 11 Wings games will be carried nationally in the United States by NBC and Versus. NBC will carry four Detroit games to an exclusive national television audience (WDIV in Detroit) while seven games will be distributed nationally on the NHL's cable-rightsholder Versus.
AM 1270 The Sports Station (WXYT) enters its sixth-year as the flagship radio station of the Red Wings in the 2006-07 season with the announce team of Ken Kal and Paul Woods. WXYT will broadcast all of Detroit's regular-season and playoff games.
Ken Daniels begins his 10th season as the Red Wings' television play-by-play announcer after joining the team from CBC television where he covered Toronto Maple Leafs hockey and the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Hockey Night in Canada.
While working for CBC, Daniels' diverse sports experience included hosting stints for CBC Sports Weekend and the Indy-Car World Series, as well as Formula One Grand Prix coverage and Toronto Blue Jays baseball. Daniels' broadcast resume also includes two Olympic Games (1996 Atlanta and 1988 Seoul) where he covered a wide range of sports including cycling, baseball, canoeing, kayaking, tennis and judo.
In addition to his numerous television assignments for CBC, Daniels was also the voice of morning sports for Toronto's all sports radio station, The Fan 590, for eight years.
Mickey Redmond enters his 22nd season as color analyst on Red Wings television. Redmond is a highly regarded analyst whose broadcast resume includes work on nationally televised games for Fox Sports, ESPN (including ESPN International broadcasts of the 1997 and 1998 Stanley Cup Finals) and CBC's Hockey Night In Canada. During the 2001 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Redmond worked with ABC as the sideline reporter for the Detroit broadcasts.
Redmond twice was a 50-goal scorer in five full seasons with Detroit after being acquired from Montréal with Guy Charron and Bill Collins for Frank Mahovlich in January 1971. He scored 52 goals and made the NHL's First All-Star Team in 1973, and netted 51 the next season to earn a Second-Team berth. He had 233 goals and 195 assists in 538 regular-season games in nine NHL seasons with Montréal and Detroit.
