Newest Sabres Announcement Announces Announcer Schedule

The Buffalo Sabres have released their broadcasting schedule for next season, and Rick Jeanneret and Harry Neale will be behind the mic for just 57 games, while Kevin Sylvester and Danny Gare will handle the other 23. Rob Ray will join RJ and Neale in the booth as a second color analyst during their games.

The team previously announced that Jeanneret and Neale would take a reduced road schedule this season due to age and fatigue. However, Sylvester and Gare will broadcast one home game, on February 24th against Boston; this game comes right before a five game West Coast road trip.

Fans who are worried about the shock of hearing someone other than RJ coming out of their televisions will be able to rest easy, as the first ten games will all be conducted by the old guard. The team has not announced who will broadcast the two games in Europe.

This will be Jeanneret's 40th year as the Sabres play-by-play man, but I think both he and all of us want him to hang on to call the Sabres first Stanley Cup victory. If that means we only get him for 57 games this year, so be it.

Check the full schedule courtesy of Sabres.com after the break.
