Veteran NHL color analyst Brian Engblom will join the Sun Sports broadcast team and serve as color analyst for all Lightning television broadcasts.
Engblom will be positioned alongside the Lightning’s longtime play-by-play announcer Rich Peckham.
He’s replacing Bobby “The Chief” Taylor who is moving to a pre-and-post game studio analyst role.
“I am thrilled to be going to such a terrific organization on and off the ice,” Engblom said. “I’ve missed working for a team and that affiliation is something that I really haven’t had in my 20 years broadcasting at the national level. Lightning fans are fortunate to have a young, terrific team. The next step is the most fun, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
Prior to joining the Lightning’s broadcasts, Engblom served as an analyst with with NBC and NBC Sports Network and TSN.
“We are very pleased that Brian has elected to join the Lightning broadcast team,” said Lightning CEO Steve Griggs. “We firmly believe that Brian is one of the best in the National Hockey League at what he does and he will work alongside Rick Peckham, himself one of the best play-by-play men in the league, to deliver Lightning fans a national-caliber broadcast on Sun Sports more than 70 times each season.”
