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.

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.

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.
