362. Former Hockey Player/Current Announcer Peter McNab Sports With Friends

    • Sports News

One of Seth's early sports heroes, Peter McNab joins the show to discuss his extensive career. Peter played in the NHL between 1973 and 1987. He played for the Buffalo Sabres, Boston Bruins, Vancouver Canucks, and ultimately, the New Jersey Devils. There he played for his father Max McNab, who was the team's general manager. Upon his retirement, he moved to the broadcast booth, where he called Devils' games from 1987-1995. Then, he moved to Colorado and became the TV analyst for the Colorado Avalanche since their move from Quebec in 1995.

This episode covers his career but focuses on the Devils' stint as well as the early years of the Avalanche. Seth stated he began watching hockey with the Devils' first game, and Peter was instrumental in those formative years. McNab's first season in the booth was the year the Devils made the playoffs for the first time in their history and concluded with their first-ever Stanley Cup Championship.

Furthermore, Seth covered the Avalanche from 1996-1998, intersecting with McNab once again.

Peter has been battling cancer and has been continuing his role with the Avs 2022 Stanley Cup Championship (which not enough time in the podcast is spent on).
