As if hockey fans needed another reason to get excited about the return of the NHL on Sportsnet ... Welcome to the team, Chris Cuthbert!! ??? ?? Stay tuned for more NHLonSN broadcast team & coverage details in coming weeks!

My man Mike is a as real as they come. Nothing but the truth here.
This is great! Also we want more John and John in Vancouver please!!!!!!
A huge gain for Sportsnet and an incalculable loss for TSN. Will miss him calling CFL games, as well as regional NHL matches.
Leafs aren't going nowhere, but fire Hughson the ? and get Joe Bowen back on television.
This is great not tell us Jim Hughson is moving to the west coast National feed instead of Leafs. DO IT.
The incomparable Chris Cuthbert CCpxpSN has left TSN to join Sportsnet's NHL broadcast team. Going to miss his voice greatly during CFL broadcasts -- a voice that became the soundtrack for many iconic CFL moments over the decades.

It is not.
Stunning considering how long Chris Cuthbert had been at TSN but he is on move to Rogers Sportsnet to become one of their main NHL play-by-play voices. The NHL national TV package on Sportsnet has been in steady decline for years. This is a huge get for them to try to revive it.

Excellent addition. Please subtract the two losers from the West. One cheers for Canucks, the other the Oil.
Maybe they can fire Jim Hughson the ? and get Cuthbert to stay at SportsNet full time. Oh, and bring back the legendary Joe Bowen back to television.
So, Rod Black is trending because people are drawing implications for Canadian sports broadcasting from the news that Chris Cuthbert is moving to Sportsnet? This is a weird country sometimes...
Agreed! His new Twitter handle is CCpxpSN ?
Chris Cuthbert is with Sportsnet now! Sportsnet finally has a good play by play guy.
What incredible news!!! CCpxpSN is one of the best of all time in my opinion. Will miss him on tsn, but extremely excited to hear him call NHL games, and hopefully Flames games as well again, on HNIC and Sportsnet . Massive news today!!

Well to he fair, he probably sees the writing on the wall. Very good chance he would not call a single CFL game this year, and was limited to American networks for hockey (I think?) So if he wanted to work this year, Sportsnet makes sense.

Love it.
Welcome to.

I dont like Hughson because he's bad at his job. Has been for quite some time. To top it off he has this ego to him. Same with Simpson. Both of them should be removed from HNIC. Hiring Cuthbert is a great move. Sportsnet finally did something right.

Holy moly. Gonna miss CC with Ray, but man Sportsnet needed this for national broadcasts. All in all, this is good news.
Stunning news: Chris Cuthbert to Sportsnet.
I wonder what this means for Sportsnet's current No. 1 NHL play by play guy, South Surrey's own Jim Hughson. Helluva 1-2 punch if they use them both on HNIC, and a boost for Canucks fans if it means more west coast games for Hughson.

No excuse for Jim Hughson ever calling a national broadcast again.
Great hire for HNIC! Hoping he gets a lot of MapleLeafs assignments.
No offense to Jim Hughson, Dave Randorf, John Bartlett, Rick Ball, John Shorthouse and all the other current NHL play-by-play broadcasters on Sportsnet but you just got a Hall Of Famer added to your roster and have hit the "big time" with Chris Cuthbert joining you. Bravo Rogers.

I actually gasped when I read this headline. This is a HUGE move sportsnet. Cuthbert and Millen?
Cuthbert is by far my favorite play by play voice. Sportsnet is by far my least favorite network. But he'll make it better. Cheers, CC. Good luck!
He's the best play by play caller!
Chris Cuthbert leaving TSN for Sportsnet really has me wondering if the CFL will ever be back...
Send Jim Hughson to Siberia! Fuck that guy!
Will never boo this man again ???
Hopefully this means Canucks fan Jim Hughson will do their games full time and not the national game.
Please please please let CC call ALL leaf games. The other guy is terrible.
Let him do the play by play for every Leafs game on Sportsnet going forward please. He's so damn good at it.
Who performed The Sounds of Silence at the end? Very powerful rendition.
My favourite commentator! Called my favourite Habs games during my childhood, and of course the "Golden Goal" in 2010. Welcome and congrats CCtsn!
Congratulations on the move. As a Sportsnet alum myself, I can tell you, you'll be working with some great people.
SIDNEY CROSBY, THE GOLDEN GOAL.
Such a great and welcomed addition. chriscuthbert is simply the best in the business at calling hockey games. Can't wait to hear him again. Will have to renew my sportsnet subscription just for him alone.

The best play by play people remain: 1. Shorty (I will fight anyone who says otherwise) 2. Rick Ball 3. Chris Cuthbert All now at sportsnet....
Well Amber is easier on the eyes.
I certainly love winding down to enjoy sports entertainment, only to hear about privilege bullshit and politics.
Cuthbert joining Sportsnet likely means hearing Hughson calling alot more canucks games going forward. Which is a million times better than Randorf.
Hating a Bradly is such an old bad take.
Please tell me that he's going to be calling every Leafs game.
Finally you pull some real talent. Get rid of John Bartlett.
The one disappointing part for me of all this with Chris Cuthbert going from TSN to Rogers Sportsnet is no more CFL obviously for Cuthbert now that he is no longer with TSN and he had been the TV voice of the CFL for decades. It's gonna be strange watching CFL without him.

What a snag for Sportsnet.
Very excited about hockey coming back then reminded that Sportsnet will be calling the games. This clowns are brutal.
New 31 Thoughts Podcast: Kim Davis, the NHL's EVP of Social Impact, joins JeffMarek and FriedgeHNIC to discuss player activism and the role of social media, what it means to leverage your privilege as an ally, and much more. ? LISTEN.

I just saw the clip of the Prime Minister's response. Upon speaking, his WORDs were perfect. "We all watch in horror and consternation..." Should he respond instantly or after 5 seconds? What's the cut-off. History will record the Words. How will it record the silence....?

Back to Hockey for a second: Chris Cuthbert is probably the best play-by-play person in the sport. He's a great add by Sportsnet. If I'm them, I make him the national guy in the East, and move Jim Hughson back to the West full time, where he seems to be more comfortable.

This is fantastic!
*just as long as HE DOES.
Excellent move for Sportsnet. They need more announcing talent badly.
Thank you guys at Sportsnet and caroline_szwed and NugNahrgang milanmiracle jimmykorderas for answering all my questions! This was an awesome streating live on Youtube !! Tune in next week for another edition of AftermathTV episode!!

You can hear our guest's donnovanbennett podcast about the anti-racism rallies & what it means to be an ally, here on Sportsnet the podcast Free Association.
Just caught "Tom The Lawyer' claiming trudeau is 'most scripted politician he has ever known'? Give. Me. A. Break. Tom is 6 years old and MISSED Entirely The Harper Decade of a MUZZLED Caucus, and pre-approved media questions... .

This is a huge win. He should be your 1 guy now!!!
Play-by-play man Chris Cuthbert leaves TSN for.
Absolutely. Well said.


What You Really Think

This is great! Also we want more John and John in Vancouver please!!!!!!

Excellent addition. Please subtract the two losers from the West. One cheers for Canucks, the other the Oil.

Finally you pull some real talent. Get rid of John Bartlett.

Very excited about hockey coming back then reminded that Sportsnet will be calling the games. This clowns are brutal.

This is fantastic!

Big loss for.

Wow! Massive move.

Hey.....You Finally Got A Great Hockey Play By Play Guy Now........ Now.

Hulk Hogan has betrayed WCW!

Welcome CCtsn to Sportsnet.

YES!!!!! Just as long as he does not replace Jim Hughson for the Leafs broadcasts on Saturdays though. Great hire! Now bring back Strombo as the Saturday night host.

Not a fan.

Great hire. Now get rid of assclown Eric Francis.

Just get John Bartlett off the Leafs broadcasts he is HORRIBLE. Put back Joe Bowen or only have Hugson or Cuthbert do the Leaf games.. NO MORE BARTLETT.

HUGE addition to Sportsnet. Looking forward to hearing him on HNIC!

And just like that CFLonTSN lost the only good thing it had left. Football announcing in Canada will never be the same.

Please tell me he's replacing Gary Gally.

Now take Romanek off of Leafs games and CC in there!

YESSSSSSS.

Please have him cover the Leafs games and fire Hughson and Simpson into the sun.

If BonsieTweets is still shut out from doing TV....then I guess this will suffice for now.

Huge loss for cfl.

PLEASE REPLACE HUGHSON ON LEAFS GAMES WITH CC. He's better in every way. And I doubt he'll embarrass the company with on-air blunders like Hughson's Patrick Kane comment.

Amazing, he needs to be 1, best in the business.

Now get rid of Hughson from leafs broadcasts. Let him commentate for his Vancouver Canucks.

Give him the final if she happens.

Woo, good news. Want to take the west coast national games? Canucks fans would love it!

How many draft picks are going the other way?

Huge win for Sportsnet! Get Hughson on the early call and Cuthbert on the lates for HNIC. Great one-two punch.

Biggest signing in Toronto sports news since Tavares.

The bad news is we're now stuck with more Rod Black on CFLonTSN.

This is the best move Sportsnet has made since acquiring NHL rights.

You know who else should STILL be there... CoachsCornerDC ..... Give us what we really want. No disrespect to Chris. He is a great broadcaster but Cherry made HNIC.

Oh wow. Congrats.

This is great. My fav active play by play man. Just don't treat him like you did Bob Cole. Now replace Ron McLean with Amber or Marek. Fix that issue next.

If I never have to hear another call by Hughson and Millen that would be super.

Wow. Great news!

Great commentator. Big win for Sportnet, sucks for TSN.

I'll miss him on CFL broadcasts.

Tell me hes replacing Hughson or Barrett.

Best FA signing yet.

4 best pbp guys in the business now... Hughson, Cuthbert, Shorthouse, Ball. These guys call amazing games no matter who is playing.

Please make him the voice of national broadcasts in the east, and give Jim Hughson his wish and get him away from the Leafs, he sounds like they kicked his puppy every time they score.

Huge pickup here. Sportsnet has been severely lacking in this department for years.

What? No Friday Night Football?

Oh my god. a good play by play man on sportsnet!

Big news congrats CCtsn !

This is great news... welcome aboard...

The best in the business! Leafs games please!!

Did you see that!

Chris Cuthbert has been the best PBP guy (in both hockey and football) for a long time now. Big win for Sportsnet and a huge loss for TSN.

PLEASE DO EVERY LEAF GAME.

I can't like this enough.

This is fantastic news. Hopefully he calls more leaf games than hughson.

He was always the best hockey commentator imo. This leaves TSN with no one good now. Ray Ferraro ?????

Huge pickup. Blockbuster signing.

AYEEE.

Looks a huge hole just opened up for ya.

Wait...who's going to broadcast CFLonTSN?

Oh wow awesome!

Brilliant!!!! CCtsn is the best in the biz. Sooooooooo happy with this news.

Great for hockey. Who is going to do the Grey Cup telecast now.

Welcome aboard, CCpxpSN ??

Oh please replace Hughson with him for Leaf games!

FANTASTIC news! CCpxpSN is not just an incredible talent, but one of the best people behind the scenes. His advice to me professionally has been invaluable & Chris is always a phenomenal interview too. Welcome to Sportsnet Chris!

Now please get him a colour man who isnt loui debrusk.. who only speaks in hockey cliches "battle levels, work ethics, upped the intensity" nearly every replay.

. Confirmned! His TSN_Sports twitter page is already gone! Please let us know when his new one is set up so I can refollow Cant wait to hear him call a game. Congrats.

So disappointing to hear. I love Cuthbert but hate Sportsnet. I was hoping with him and Miller sticking around at TSN there was a chance that the NHL would somehow move over there. I understand why he would move but sucks that he has to go to such a clearly inferior company.

Wow ?

Oh wow. What an addition by Sportsnet and an immeasurable loss by TSN_Sports. Chris Cuthbert is, without question, the best in the game.

This is awesome.

I want him announcing *all* Leafs games.

This is awesome! Excited.

Oh my!

One of the best in the business. Pumped to hear him call hockey games.
