College Hockey:
Grande and Raeder Named to SportsChannel Broadcast Team

— SportsChannel New England announced today that Sean Grande and Cap Raeder will serve as play-by-play announcer and color commentator, respectively, for its Hockey East broadcasts.

Grande has broadcast hockey and other collegiate sports on radio and television for the past ten years, as well as hosting the Stanley Cup playoffs on NHL Radio. He is Sports Director at Boston’s WEEI Sports Radio.

In addition, Grande will be one of two Hockey East media representatives in the U.S. College Hockey Online poll, carried weekly by the Associated Press.

Raeder earned All-America honors as a player at New Hamphshire, where he returned as an assistant coach after a professional career with the New England Whalers of the World Hockey Association. After serving as an assistant coach at both New Hampshire and Clarkson University, he was named head coach at Clarkson in 1985. After three years at the Clarkson helm, he spent eight seasons as an NHL assistant coach: six with the Los Angeles Kings, and the last two with the Boston Bruins.

The 1997-98 season is the first in a three-year agreement between Hockey East and SportsChannel New England that will provide approximately 45 televised games over that period.
