On Tuesday, Turner Sports announced its full lineup ahead of its first season broadcasting the NHL in the United States. The lineup is headlined by 'The Great One', Wayne Gretzky, as was revealed back in the spring. Among those included is former NHL heavyweight and co-host of the Spittin' Chiclets podcast, Paul Bissonnette.

This won't be the first time 'Biznasty' has been doing commentary or analysis. He joined his former club, the Arizona Coyotes in the radio booth in 2017.

Other names included are Anson Carter and Rick Tocchet as in-studio analysts, Kenny Albert and Brendan Burke doing play-by-play, Darren Pang and Eddie Olczyk as in-game analysts, along with Liam McHugh as host and Jennifer Botterill, Tarik El-Bashir and Jackie Redmond as regular contributers.

"This veteran group of announcers, analysts and reporters bring a wealth of on-ice experience and achievements to Turner Sports' NHL coverage including eight Stanley Cups, four Olympic medals, 11 World Championship medals, more than 5,200 pro hockey regular season games played, and more than 5,400 regular season career points," Turner Sports said in a statement on Tuesday.

Turner Sports, which will televise games on TNT and TBS will have their first-ever NHL broadcasts on Wednesday, October 13th when the New York Rangers battle the Washington Capitals and the Chicago Blackhawks take on the Colorado Avalanche.
