Hockey analyst Drew Remenda, a longtime favorite of Sharks fans, will play a more active role in San Jose this season, the team said on Tuesday.
Remenda returned to work on several of Shark’s games last season after a nearly seven-year hiatus, and this season will be mainly doing color analysis on road radio broadcasts.
The Sharks also revealed their streaming schedule, which includes all games streamed on the Sharks Audio Network for the second straight season. Ted Ramy’s 24-hour audio stream with the daily Morning Tide talk show is available at sjsharks.com/listen or Sharks + SAP Center.
Remenda’s duties will include a 30-minute show on the Sharks Audio Network every two weeks with guests and discussion of both the Sharks and the rest of the NHL.
“I’m so grateful to be back and I love this team, I’ve always loved this team,” Remenda said when he returned to the Sharks broadcasts in February. “I’ve been part of this team since day one and I’m glad to be back after the break.”
Before returning to Sharks last season on a part-time basis, Remenda worked with Sportsnet in Canada as part of the Edmonton Oilers broadcast team since 2015.
Meanwhile, Dan Rusanovki is returning in his 31st season behind the microphone as Shark’s voiceover on the radio. Rusanovski will mainly work with Remenda and former Shark Scott Hannan. In addition, Bret Hedikan and ex-Shark Mark Smith will review several games.
The Sharks also announced that 74 of their 82 regular season games will air on NBC Sports California, starting Saturday’s match against Winnipeg.
Randy Hahn, the eight-time Regional Emmy Award-winning TV personality, returns to televised on NBCSC. Khan will work primarily with Hedikan, who is returning for his eighth season, calling the games “San Jose.” Remend will also appear in select TV games.
Remenda was formerly an assistant coach at Sharks (1991-95) and then moved into the radio booth with Dan Rusanovski. He also worked 13 seasons with Khan on Sharks TV games.
The Eight Sharks Games will be broadcast nationally as part of the NHL’s new partnership with ESPN. These games are: October 26 in Nashville; November 2 against Buffalo; November 30 in New Jersey; December 28 – Arizona; January 11 – Detroit; March 15 against Florida and March 17 in Los Angeles on ESPN + / HULU. The April 21 match against St. Louis will be televised on ESPN.
