Hockey fans will hear a new voice on the behind-the-glass reporting as analyst Pierre McGuire has been replaced on the No. 1 NHL broadcasting team for NBC Sports, as first reported by Awful Announcing. 

The move was placed in favor of fellow on-ice reporter and former goalie Brian Boucher, who was with the team of Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick and Eddie Olcyzk/Mike Milbury during the playoffs last season. 

It is also confirmed that McGuire will still be announcing games for NBC Sports, but will be moved to a different team. That team hasn’t been announced yet. 

But down below will be the possible move that McGuire will be part of. 

This move was also made due in part to McGuire receiving critical criticism throughout his career. 

The moments have included giving a Pittsburgh Penguins Player a butt slap and having an uneasy teaching moment to a USA women’s hockey player who was a guest reporter with McGuire. 

Hockey fans will take it as a non-disappointing sign because they always wanted him out of his position. 

Especially when they had a once trending hashtag of #ShutUpPierre in order to get the reporter removed from near the bench. 

Lets say for the fans, it did work for them and it was a long time coming. Boucher will take over as the No. 1 reporter once the regular season begins in October.
