Cherry joins ESPN for final two rounds of Stanley Cup playoffs
It will be a battle of the best tailor-made suits when CBC hockey analyst and legend Don Cherry joins Barry Melrose to analyze the NHL Stanley Cup conference finals and Cup final on ESPN. Cherry’s first appearance will be Friday.
The cable network also said that Cherry will join Melrose and “SportsCenter” anchor Steve Levy for on-site reports during the Cup final.
Cherry has one of the most amazing suit collections of all time. Melrose can challenge him with his collection of pin-striped suits.
“Pairing Don Cherry and Barry Melrose will provide NHL fans with two of the most respected and opinionated voices in hockey today,” ESPN executive vice president of production Norby Williamson said in a statement. “‘SportsCenter’ will be the place to turn for Stanley Cup analysis, debate and highlights.”
Does this mean ESPN actually cares about the NHL? Does it want to be televising games again?
Cherry will donate his ESPN fee to the Humane Society.
