Lindsay Named Panthers\' Radio Analyst
By Dave Joseph for floridapanthers.com

Bill Lindsay scored the biggest goal in Panther history. Now the popular and gritty forward will help describe Panther goals for the radio audience.

Lindsay, who helped the Panthers to the 1996 Stanley Cup finals, will join Randy Moller in the broadcast booth this season on Sports Talk 790 The Ticket, the Panthers’ new flagship station.

Moller, who has served as Panthers’ radio analyst the past 10 years, will take over play-by-play duties while Lindsay will serve as analyst for all 82 games of the upcoming 2007-08 season.

“It’s a great opportunity for me to stay in the game, continue living in South Florida, and be involved with the team I played for,” said Lindsay, who scored the memorable, game-winning goal against the Bruins’ in the ’96 Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

“I look forward to working with Billy on the radio broadcasts,” said Moller, a teammate of Lindsay’s on the 1994-95 Panthers. “He’s one of the most dynamic, personable and knowledgeable Panthers in the history of the franchise. It should be a fun, exciting and entertaining season on the radio. I’m looking forward to it.”

Michael Yormark, president and COO of the Panthers, called Moller and Lindsay “two of the most respected representatives of Panthers hockey in South Florida and we are confident this is the perfect fit for our radio broadcasts.”

Lindsay, 36, was selected by the Panthers in the 1993 Expansion Draft. Originally drafted in 1991 by the Quebec Nordiques, Lindsay played seven seasons with the Panthers and scored 67 goals. Lindsay was a tenacious checker who killed penalties and shadowed some of the top opposing forwards in the league, including Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr in the ’96 Eastern Conference finals.

After playing with the Thrashers in 2003-04, Lindsay spent the past two seasons playing in Germany for the Cologne Sharks.

“I could have gone back to Germany, but South Florida is my home and I’ve always returned here each summer,” Lindsay said. “I had done some shows with ESPN2 about six, seven years ago and I enjoyed it and thought it was something I might want to look at. The NHL puts on a broadcasting school Quinnipiac (N.Y.), so I took those courses hoping maybe something would happen.

“I had an offer to go back and play in Germany, and another option I had was to be an assistant coach and player in the East Coast Hockey League. But being with the Panthers made the most sense. This is home, and being part of an NHL team was, as I said, a great opportunity.”
