Each radio show will feature in depth analysis and assessment of each League necessary to make it to the NHL; we will speak with media, agents, scouts, coaches, general managers, trainers, sports physiologists and players to find a new and different perspective on the issues of the world of hockey.

Scott Laughlin

Scott Laughlin

Scott is in his 20th year in the business and has worked in sports broadcasting from the outset. A die-hard fan of the Dallas Cowboys and of 80′s hard rock music, he has worked in a variety of roles in the sports media from talk show host to television anchor and reporter. He’s made many stops along the way going from Standard Broadcast News to Global Television to The Score to The Team all-sports radio back to Global TV and then onto NHL Home Ice. As such, Scott has drawn many comparisons to former NHLer Mike Sillinger. He lists interviews with Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, Deacon Jones, Jim Brown, and Gene Simmons amongst the favourites he’s ever conducted. Call him narrow-minded if you will, but he freely admits to not having any outside interests other than family, sports, and music.

Mike Ross

Mike Ross

Getting up at 4 in the morning is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it does have its advantages:

  1. No traffic…unless there is a major blizzard thumping the city, the drive is a breeze. Plus, I car pool with Big Country so there is lively conversation right out of the gate, lower the chances I will get drowsy and drive off the highway.
  2. Fresh coffee….whether it’s at my house or in the office, it is a great thing to get first crack at the morning java
  3. The workday ends early….you see, when you’re in at 4:30 or 5:00AM, you’re out at noon and in the rack by 1pm….see, another nap reference…yawwwwn…I am getting sleepy.
  4. Entertaining you, the listener. There is nothing I like more than to hear someone say I have helped shorten their commute or liven up their morning routine. We get to watch and talk about the greatest game in the world and I am just thrilled to be a tiny speck in the universe that is the NHL.

Mick Kern

Mick Kern

A Night Owl who never gets to bed until after the 2 am sports highlight shows are over, Mick is now part of Hockey This Morning, and continues his tour-of-duty on The War Room.  He has talked hockey with most of the big names in the sport, but still hasn’t had the opportunity to interview Len Frig, Pat Ribble, Yves Belanger, Ken Houston, and Mike Christie.  Mick is still haunted by the memory of Dale Hunter’s overtime goal in 1982, and refuses to recognize the Boston Bruins as the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions.

Joe Thistel

Joe Thistel

Joe Thistel is the Director of Programming, Sports and Talk, at SiriusXM Canada and is a true veteran of Canadian broadcasting. An award winning writer and producer, Joe has worked with some of North America’s most recognizable personalities, and has collaborated and consulted with virtually every radio network in Canada. Joe keeps Boomer in check on The Point, while overseeing the programming of radio’s only 24 hour channel. His favourite sports memory is Frazier knocking Ali on his can, while his sports franchise is the Chicago Black Hawks. Why? Two words: Bobby Hull.

Jim “Boomer” Gordon

Jim “Boomer” Gordon

Jim “Boomer” Gordon fills many roles at NHL HOME ICE, including producer, personality and all-around sports guru. You can find Boomer as the host and producer of both The Point and Face Off, but he pops up everywhere on the channel from time to time. A favourite of the everyman, Boomer cut his teeth working on In The Slot with Phil Esposito for the past three hockey seasons, and this is actually his first broadcasting role, having spent the first part of his life as a sports fan – not a sports personality. His favourite team is the Pittsburgh Steelers, and you better smile when you say that.

Peter Berce

Peter Berce

Peter Berce is co-Host of the War Room and all around great guy (at least that’s what they tell him). He has been in broadcasting for 9 years starting as a producer in Toronto, Canada. He’s a CNN junkie (loves that Kyra Phillips). His favorite hockey player is Anze Kopitar of the LA Kings and his pound for pound best player in the NHL is Jarome Iginla of the Calgary Flames. His favorite sports recollection would be watching ABC’s Wide World of Sports – The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat (remember the ski jumper).

Terry Mercury

Terry Mercury

Terry still can’t believe the irony of being born and raised in Toronto…a life-long Montreal Canadiens fan…and then ending up as the Leafs beat guy for NHL Home Ice. He too would have kept Jaroslav Halak with the Habs. As a former defenceman he LOVES the idea of no-touch icing. He can’t stand that stupid “Canada’s Team” song they play before every Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game…and loves making guest appearances on The War Room. His 16-year-old daughter is an “artsy”…but that’s okay because the one hockey team she loves is the Montreal Canadiens….and she also loves Jimi Hendrix…which proves she is indeed his daughter. His favorite hockey people are Jean Beliveau (pure class)….Brian Burke (love the straightforward…no-nonsense approach)…and Jarome Iginla (the best combination of skill and toughness out there). Non-Hockey…..Ali…Jim Brown…Henry Aaron and Magic Johnson (all were the best at what they did….with no pharmaceutical help). Would also like the Leafs to reach the playoffs just so he can remember what it was like to have a post-season in town.

Bruce Bolton

Bruce Bolton

Bruce Bolton is an update host for Around The Rinks on NHL Home Ice. He has spent the past 5 years in television and radio broadcasting. The top sports moment in Bruce’s mind is by far “Touch ‘em all Joe,” the Joe Carter walk-off home-run to win the 1993 World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays. However, the hockey memory he will never forget is Team Canada winning the Gold Medal at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. When it comes to Bruce’s Hockey Heroes he lists Tie Domi, Wendel Clark, and Doug Gilmour as his top choices.

Rob Higgins

Rob Higgins

Rob Higgins, often referred to as “Higgy’”, is NHL Home Ice’s resident number-crunching, rock n’ roller. The Toronto-based singer-songwriter /author / columnist is co-host of The Point: Fantasy Edition with Jim “Boomer” Gordon and every Friday afternoon you can tune in to hear they’re one-of-a-kind fantasy hockey show. Higgy’s new book, the Higgins Hockey Fantasy Index, a gem of an annual resource for hockey fans, is heavy on analysis and driven by his unique and revolutionary statistic, “HFI”, the secret to Higgy’s domination. When not attaching values to NHL hockey players he can be found on tour with his band, Dearly Beloved.

James Murphy

James Murphy

James Murphy has covered the Bruins and the NHL for the last eight seasons. He has written for NHL.com, NESN.com, Insidehockey.com and Le Hockey Magazine and hosts the “Hockey Prime Time Show” heard every Saturday from 2-4 p.m.

Connor McKenna

Connor McKenna

Conor McKenna is in his 5th year covering the Montreal Canadiens and the NHL at THE TEAM 990 all sports radio in Montreal. This is his second season as host of the Hockey Primetime Show heard every Saturday from 2-4pm on NHL Home Ice.

Todd Lewis

Todd Lewis

Todd Lewis has covered sports professionally for well over a decade. Having worked with the NHL Network and NHL Home Ice, Todd is a lifelong hockey fan who enjoys the rich history of the NHL, but also wants to see the game grow and evolve from the stone age. He also played hockey growing up. Todd still possesses the powerful slap shot of an eight year old, he was a rugged defenceman who took his share of misconduct penalties for expressing his opinions. Now he’ll have a proper outlet and won’t be muzzled for expressing those ideas.

Ryan M. Paton

Ryan M. Paton

Ryan has been in the sports broadcasting industry for 14 years and has made stops at the Score Television Network (can’t seem to escape Scotty and Shally) as well as Rogers Television in Toronto. Alone with being an avid sports and hockey fan, Ryan continues to try and make his other dream come true- to one day play professionally as an athlete as he plays all sports. However, the local “fun” leagues will have to do as that dream died long ago. Along with broadcasting, Pates as he is known around the studio, also does some acting work on the side as well as assisting at schools in teaching Broadcasting courses. At the end of the work day, his favourite line is, “Yep! We’ll get them tomorrow…” You can hear Ryan on Ice Cap on NHL Home Ice as well as reporting on Scoreboard updates.
