Sooner or later, Andrew Brunette is bound for the airwaves as a hockey analyst. It’s going to be sooner. “Bruno” is going to serve as a guest analyst on NHL Network starting Friday through Sunday.
Brunette had one of the quicker wits in the Wild locker room over the past few years, and he’s certainly got the voice and the laugh that are perfect for TV. You can check out his TV chops on this video from the Wild Skills competition two years ago. I think it would be nice if they brought Derek Boogaard on the show for Brunette to interview him one more time. And if Brent Burns could also be brought in to stand in the background and laugh hysterically, all the better.
