Bell Media announced on Monday that it has selected its new play-by-play man for Canadiens games on TSN 690: Dan Robertson, who called QMJHL games for Eastlink.
Robertson replaces John Bartlett, who is leaving to be the play-by-play guy for regional games on Sportsnet.
Sergio Momesso stays on the broadcast team, doing analysis.
Robertson was one of a few people brought in to call preseason games (he did the Sept. 25 game against the Avalanche). Program Director Chris Bury tells The Suburban’s Mike Cohen that Robertson’s demo was impressive, and that the staff seemed to be unanimous in support of him.
Robertson is on Twitter, though his handle to changed from @EastlinkDanR to @DRTSN690.
UPDATE (Oct. 25): CTV Montreal did an interview with Robertson.
