Denis Potvin Returns as Analyst for Television Broadcasts
FOX Sports Florida announced today that Denis Potvin has joined its roster of Panthers on-air talent as it expands their broadcast team for the 2014-15 season.

FOX Sports Florida, the regional television home of the Florida Panthers, today announced Denis Potvin has joined its roster of Panthers on-air talent as it expands their broadcast team for the 2014-15 season. In his new role, Potvin will return to the broadcast booth as color analyst, a position he previously held with the Florida Panthers for the club’s first 16 seasons in the National Hockey League.

Alongside play-by-play announcer Steve “Goldie” Goldstein, Potvin will provide a seasoned, exciting voice to Panthers’ television broadcasters after spending the past four seasons as color analyst for the Ottawa Senators. Bill Lindsay will remain an integral part of FOX Sports Florida’s Panthers broadcast team as he transitions to a new role this season as color analyst for Panthers LIVE! pregames, intermissions and postgame shows, along with providing a second analyst on-ice perspective for select games. Bill will join Drew Goldfarb, who returns for his second season as host of Panthers LIVE!

"We are pleased to welcome Denis back to the broadcast booth for the Florida Panthers," said Florida Panthers CEO & President Rory Babich. "With an exciting season on the ice right around the corner, the addition of Denis, a hockey legend with long-term ties to the organization, to the existing broadcast team of Steve, Billy and Drew promises to provide an enhanced experience for our TV viewers with one of the premier broadcast teams in the NHL."

“This was a great opportunity to expand and bolster our Panthers broadcast team by bringing in Denis, an NHL Hall of Famer and a veteran broadcaster with intimate knowledge of Florida Panthers Hockey and the team’s history in South Florida,” said Brett Opdyke, executive producer of FOX Sports Florida. “It also allows us to showcase Bill’s analyst skills on our Panthers LIVE! shows, and gives our broadcasts the added bonus of a second analyst “between the benches” on marquee games.”

A four-time Stanley Cup winner, three-time winner of the James Norris Memorial Trophy (Top Defenseman) and Hockey Hall of Fame inductee, Potvin will start his new role with FOX Sports Florida on Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014 when the Panthers take on the rival Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2014-15 season opener.
