Tsn reported Mike Milbury will be joining TSN as part of their broadcast team.

"Mike has a reputation for being one of the most entertaining characters in the world of hockey," said Mark Milliere, Vice-President, News & NHL on TSN. "He's controversial and quotable, and will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge about the game to our broadcasts."

"I've appeared on TSN numerous times for my antics as a player, coach and GM, but this time around will be an entirely different experience," said Milbury. "I'm really excited about the opportunity to interact with such a talented broadcast team, while offering my insights on the NHL to Canadian viewers, who are without a doubt the most passionate hockey fans in the world."

* Milbury, who never shies away from the media spotlight and has provided more than his fair share of memorable quotes, once described himself as follows: "I'm a 1978 Toyota with 86,000 miles on it, rust spots, and a hole in the floorboard, but hey, I start every morning."

NYI Islander Fan Central Comments:
As always Milbury is entertaining with his comments, he is good for hockey and everyone in the media business seems to want to hire him. Despite his mistakes here he is entertaining and this game badly needs that. Pierre McGuire and Mike Milbury make for must see television.
