Out of the blue, the Las Vegas Golden Knights just waltzed in and scooped up a key part of the Boston Bruins game experience: Dave Goucher is leaving his post as radio play-by-play man for 98.5 The Sports Hub and taking the TV play-by-play role for the Golden Knights.
Per a release from the team, Goucher will be joined by one-time Bruin defenseman Shane Hnidy, who will fill the color commentator role.

Congrats are in order to Goucher, who’s been captivating Bruins fans on the radio for almost 20 years.
Goucher’s calls are unforgettable, with his voice rising in excitement as a play develops and the trademarked “SCORE!” sticking in the head of every Bruins fan.
Goucher’s radio calls made some of the most memorable moments in recent Bruins history even better, from “GET THE DUCK BOATS READY!” to “BERGERON! BERGERON!”
Good luck to Dave out west. The Sports Hub will have a hard time filling his shoes.
