We finally know who’s going to be filling Dave Strader’s shoes in Phoenix. It’s former Thrashers play by play man Matt McConnell. McConnell worked for the Thrashers in two different stints. He worked for the Wild in between. Before joining Atlanta as their original broadcaster, he worked in Anaheim and Pittsburgh. Like Strader, he also has some national work in his past as the voice of college hockey on CBS Sports Network for several years. In addition, he’s called games for Westwood One Radio, NHL Network and even filled in once on TNT’s NBA coverage. Tyson Nash and Todd Walsh are returning as the rest of the Fox Sports Arizona Coyotes broadcast team.
