Todd Fedoruk Joining Flyers' Radio Broadcast
Charlie O’Connor reported this first, but here’s confirmation from the Flyers that Todd Fedoruk is replacing the retiring Coatesy on the radio:
Once again, 97.5 The Fanatic, will serve as the primary flagship station of the Flyers Broadcast Network, with select games moved to sister station 93.3 WMMR led by play-by-play announcer, Tim Saunders, and new color commentator, Todd Fedoruk. Former NHL forward, Fedoruk, was selected by the Flyers in the seventh round (164th overall) of the 1997 NHL Draft and appeared in 268 games with Philadelphia and registered 39 points (13-26=39) in five seasons (2000-04, 2006-07). He collected 97 points (32-65=97) in 545 career NHL games in nine seasons with the Flyers, Anaheim, Dallas, Minnesota, Arizona and Tampa Bay (2000-10). The Alberta native also recorded 23 points (5-18=23) in 84 career contests with the Phantoms of the American Hockey League (AHL) in parts of five seasons (1999-02, 2003-05) and was a member of the Phantoms 2005 Calder Cup Championship team.
Fedoruk had two separate stints with the Flyers in the early 2000s. No clue if he’s any good on the radio, but we’ll find out soon!
The Flyers also confirmed that Booooooooosh (Brian Boucher) will be replacing Jonesy (Keith Jones) on television. Boosh is also filling Jonesey’s national television role as well.
