Four Pittsburgh Penguins alumni have been added to the SportsNet Pittsburgh crew that will handle telecasts during the coming season.

They include:

*** Colby Armstrong, who will be an in-game color and studio analyst;

*** Phil Bourque, who will be an in-game color analyst. Bourque also will retain his position as analyst on radio broadcasts, so he will do some games on TV, others on radio;

*** Jay Caufield, who will continue to serve as studio analyst, a role he has held on Penguins telecasts since 2005;

*** Mike Rupp who, like Armstrong, will be an in-game color and studio analyst. He has been a studio analyst on Penguins telecasts since 2017.

The three in-game analysts will serve on a rotating basis.

Earlier, former radio play-by-play man Josh Getzoff was named to handle those duties on TV. Longtime rink-side reporter Dan Potash was moved into a studio role and replaced at games by Hailey Hunter.

A release from SportsNet Pittsburgh said that additional game and studio analysts will be announced at a future date.

Thet netowrk’s first telecast of the year will be Oct. 2, when the Pittsburgh Penguins will meet Ottawa in an exhibition game in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
