We couldn't let this tidbit slip through the Friday at 4 p.m. news dump - the great Michael Russo reports that Minnesota Wild play-by-play announcer (and the inspiration for FSN Bingo) Dan Terhaar won't be back. Here's the press release from the article:
The contracts of each of the Minnesota Wild television and radio announcers expired with the end of the 2011-2012 season. The team is in discussions to retain radio broadcasters Bob Kurtz and Tom Reid and television analyst Mike Greenlay and expects to make a final announcement regarding its broadcast teams later this spring. The Minnesota Wild will hire a new television play-by-play announcer for the 2012-13 season. The Wild thanks Dan Terhaar for the seven seasons he devoted to the organization and wishes him the best in his future endeavors.Terhaar replaced Matt McConnell (who replaced current UFC play-by-play announcer Mike Goldberg) as the voice of the Wild 7 years ago and while he's been over the top and had a tendency to mispronounce players' names, we do wish Dan the best of luck in whatever he decides to do next.
