In replacement for Denis Potvin, the Florida Panthers and Fox Sports Florida have named Randy Moller as their new TV Color Analyst.
The open position led the Panthers and Fox Sports Florida to immediately name Randy Moller as his replacement. Moller, 55, has spent the past four seasons between the benches as a television analyst.
Spanning all the way back to 1996-97 where Moller initially started as a radio analyst, he eventually worked his way up to becoming the Panthers’ radio play-by-play announcer in 2007-08.
Now, Moller will join Steve Goldstein, the Panthers’ television play-by-play announcer, up in the broadcast booth to call Panthers games.
Panthers President & CEO Matthew Caldwell had nothing but praise for Moller and his new role in the broadcast booth. As per NHL.com, here’s what he had to say:
"“Randy has been a beloved member of our broadcast team who has a special relationship with our organization, fanbase and the South Florida community. Over the years, Randy’s one-of-a-kind personality and knowledge of the game have made him a constant presence in Panthers games on both radio and television. We’re thrilled to announce Randy’s new role in the broadcast booth and look forward to hearing him and ‘Goldie’ call the action this season.”"
FOX Sports Florida Executive Producer Brett Opdyke also followed up, expressing his excitement towards Moller’s new role:
"“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Randy Moller to the broadcast booth this coming season. Randy has served as a terrific ambassador for the franchise and sport for over two decades in South Florida. I have no doubt that his experience and personality will shine on our telecasts alongside Steve Goldstein.”"
A former Panther back in 1994-95, Moller played in 17 games with the Cats, recording three assists during his short stint in South Florida.
With Moller now joining the booth to call Panthers games for the upcoming 2019-20 season, fans will be in for a treat to witness a Moller-Goldstein duo.
