The senior sports producer for EastLink TV, who has covered sports across Atlantic University Sport and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for a decade and a half, is taking on a new position with TSN Radio 960, as play-by-play announcer for the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens.

Robertson joins game analyst and 13-year NHL player Sergio Momesso in the broadcast booth, TSN announced Monday.

His new gig starts with Montreal’s regular season opener on the road against the Toronto Maple Leafs, set for Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. AT.

Robertson grew up in Trenton but moved to New Glasgow with his wife Kathy and two children, Clark and Victoria, according to an AUS news release.

“Dan Robertson is a true professional,” AUS executive director Phil Currie has said of him. “He often finds the details in a story that add a personal touch and truly connect the viewers.”
