Alright, for the final time for the next few months, our readers have voted, I’ve tallied those votes, and we have a new set of fan-generated announcer rankings. Today’s ranking covers the local NHL broadcasters for the 2019-20 season, and we had just over 14,000 votes submitted in total, coming out to an average of more than 460 per team.

If I missed listing an analyst or used an unflattering screengrab, I apologize. I especially apologize for any errors with the Canadian broadcasters, because man oh man those teams were difficult to compile and screengrab.

For the full breakdown of total votes and percentages, click here. For the rankings we did four years ago, which featured plenty of different broadcasters and a much larger total vote pool compared to this year’s batch of rankings, click here.
