Hockey analyst Drew Remenda, a longtime favorite of Shark fans, will take on an expanded role this season on San Jose broadcasts, the team announced Tuesday.
Remenda returned to work on a few Shark games last season after a nearly seven-year absence, and primarily provide color analysis on road radio broadcasts this season.
Shark also announced their broadcast schedule, which includes every game broadcast on the Shark Audio Network for the second consecutive season. The 24-hour, seven-day-a-week audio feed-featuring the daily talk show “Morning Tide” hosted by Ted Ramey-is available online at sjshark.com/listen or Shark + SAP Center App.
Remenda’s duties will include a 30 -minute show on the Shark Audio Network every two weeks, featuring guests and discussions 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 Shark broadcasts in February. “I’ve been a part of this team since day one, and I’m excited to be back after a break.”
Before returning to Shark last season on a part-time basis, Remenda worked at Sportsnet in Canada as part of the Edmonton Oilers broadcast team since 2015.
Meanwhile, Dan Rusanowky returns for his 31st season behind the mic as the Shark’s play-by-play voice on the radio. Rusanowsky will mostly work with Remenda and former Shark Scott Hannan. In addition, Bret Hedican and ex-Shark Mark Smith will provide analysis for several games.
The Shark also said 74 of their 82 regular season games will be transferred to NBC Sports California, which will begin with Saturday night’s opening season against Winnipeg.
Randy Hahn, the eight-hour Emmy Award-winning TV presenter on Shark, is back on television broadcasts on NBCSC. Hahn will work with the crowd with Hedican, who returns for his eighth season to call the San Jose games. Remenda will also appear in select television games.
Remenda was Shark’s former assistant coach (1991-95) before moving to the radio broadcast booth alongside Dan Rusanowsky. He also worked 13 seasons with Hahn on Shark TV games.
Eight Shark games will be televised nationwide as part of the NHL’s new partnership with ESPN networks. Those games are: Oct. 26 in Nashville; Nov. 2 vs. Buffalo; Nov. 30 in New Jersey; Dec. 28 vs. Arizona; Jan. 11 vs. Detroit; March 15 vs. Florida and March 17 in Los Angeles on ESPN + / HULU. The April 21 game against St. Louis. Louis will be televised on ESPN.
