Ken Daniels and former Red Wings forward, Mickey Redmond, return as the Red Wings’ TV announce crew with former Red Wings defenseman and Hall of Famer, Larry Murphy, rotating in for Redmond during select road games.
Ken Daniels begins his 16th season as the Red Wings’ television play-by-play announcer, joining the team from “Hockey Night in Canada”, where he handled play-by-play duties and hosted segments with Don Cherry on Coach’s Corner.
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.
Daniels won a Michigan Emmy in 2006 when he called a Red Wings-Ottawa Senators game from between the benches at Joe Louis Arena. In 2011, he was named the winner of the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association’s Ty Tyson Award for broadcast excellence.
Mickey Redmond enters his 27th year as color analyst on Red Wings television broadcasts. 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. Last November, Redmond received the prestigious Foster Hewitt Memorial Award from the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto for his outstanding contributions to the game of hockey as a broadcaster.
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.
