Great choice, Tom is a consummate pro who's had many years in the broadcast field! Quite a resume! He did a great job as PA announcer in the past too!

Will he fit in the box?

Thank God he won't be on the radio the nights the Comets have home games. He and his daughter are awful.

anyone want to buy my season tickets? I wish I knew he was going to be the PA guy before I bought them. definatly won't be renewing my tickets

He is why many people stopped going to other Utica hockey team games

I won't be going to any game that Tom Coyne's involed in. can't stand listening to him, he's VERY arrogant, and Tom isn't a fan of good personal hygiene.

Don't let him bother you. Watch the Utica Comettes instead.

what on earth are you talking about?? No true hockey fan gives a damn about who the pa announcer is. And theres not alot for a pa announcer to do at a hockey game with the video boards doing most the adverstising

You sound like you have never been to a pro hockey game. If there is little for a PA announcer to do then why are the Comets making a big deal with their announcement?
I think you have been duped.
Where will you and all of the season ticket holders sit in Kennedy Arena? Lol
