Sharks bringing back Drew Remenda for expanded role on broadcasts


Hockey analyst Drew Remenda, a longtime favorite of Sharks fans, will take on an expanded role this season during San Jose’s broadcasts, the team announced Tuesday.

Remenda returned to work a handful of Sharks games last season after a nearly seven-year absence, and will primarily provide color analysis during road radio broadcasts this season.

The Sharks also revealed their broadcast schedule, which includes every game being broadcast on the Sharks Audio Network for the second consecutive season. The 24-hour, seven days a week audio feed — featuring the daily Ted Ramey-hosted “Morning Tide” talk show — is available online at sjsharks.com/listen or the Sharks+SAP Center App.

Remenda’s duties will include a 30-minute show on the Sharks Audio Network each fortnight, featuring 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 a part of this team since day one, and I’m glad to come back after a hiatus.”

Before returning to the Sharks last season on a part-time basis, Remenda had been working with 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 Sharks’ 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 a few games.

The Sharks also said 74 of their 82 regular season games will be telecast on NBC Sports California, beginning with Saturday night’s season opener against Winnipeg.
