After Rick Peckham announced his retirement as the play-by-play announcer for the Tampa Bay Lightning telecasts, everyone wanted to know who would replace him. Now we know!

The Lightning and FOX Sports Sun have announced their new voice to join the broadcast team is Dave Randorf. The veteran announcer brings over 30 years of experience to Tampa Bay. He will join Brian Engblom, Paul Kennedy, Dave Andreychuk, Bobby Taylor and Adam Hall on the Tampa Bay Lightning broadcast team.

Randorf tweeted that he’s looking forward to following Rick Peckham as announcer for Tampa Bay.

For the past six years he has worked for Rogers Sportsnet. Among other duties, he has announced on Hockey Night in Canada, Stanley Cup Playoffs and All-Star Game skills competitions. The 53-year-old also spent 19 years at TSN. He announced Canadian Football League games, as well as play-by-play for the Montreal Canadiens.

The Tampa Bay Lightning begin their 2021 NHL season on January 13. They will host the Chicago Blackhawks at Amalie Arena at 8 p.m. on NBC Sports Network. Our first opportunity to hear Dave Randorf as the Lightning announcer will be on January 15.
