Detroit — Chris Osgood has moved into the broadcast booth.
The popular former Red Wings goalie will become a Fox Sports Detroit game and studio analyst for the upcoming season, the network announced Monday.
Osgood, who won three Stanley Cup championship with the Red Wings and won 400 games in his career, will make his on-air debut with Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond during the Sept. 22 and Sept. 25 exhibition games.
His first studio appearance will be Oct. 4.
“I’m happy to be joining the Fox Sports Detroit team,” Osgood said. “My best memories as a player were wearing the Winged Wheel. The fans in Detroit have been incredible, and I’m excited to start this new adventure.”
Osgood replaces former teammate Larry Murphy, who was released by Fox Sports Detroit late last season.
Osgood primarily will provide analysis in the studio, but will replace Redmond on selected road games throughout the season.
FSD will broadcast 71 regular-season and three exhibition games this season, along with pregame and postgame shows for each telecast.
“All of us at Fox Sports Detroit are excited to welcome Chris to our Red Wings broadcasting team,” said Greg Hammaren, senior vice president and general manager at FSD. “His unique and current perspective of the NHL and the players will serve Wings fans well. Chris’ addition is another example of our commitment to always improve and always bring Wings fans our best effort.”
