On Monday the Sharks are expected to announce that Jamie Baker and David Maley will serve as color commentators for the upcoming season that can be heard on 98.5 K-FOX and the Sharks Radio Network. They will join the long-standing "Radio Voice of the Sharks", Dan Rusanowsky, by offering insight on a rotating basis.
Baker will provide color analysis for 70 of the 82 regular season games, while Maley will appear on 12 of the broadcasts. Rusanowsky will provide play-by-play for the entire regular season.
"We are please to have two former Sharks in the radio booth with Dan," said Director of Broadcasting Frank Albin. "We're looking forward to their insight and enthusiasm on the air."
Jamie Baker returns to San Jose where he spent four seasons with the Sharks as a player. The native of Nepean, Ontario appeared in 186 regular season games recording 35 goals and 27 assists (35-27-62) with the Sharks. All of his 25 career postseason contests were played with the Sharks.
"I'm excited to be back with the Sharks organization and to be part of the resurgence of hockey," said Baker. "It is the best sport in the world."
David Maley, who had a nine-year NHL career, will call approximately 12 games throughout the course of the season. He will offer insight gained from his nine-year NHL career that included two seasons with the Sharks. Following his playing career, Maley kept his roots planted in the Bay Area as a founder of the Rollin' Ice roller hockey facility at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds.
"I'm really happy to be able to work with Dan," said Maley. "I've been a fan of his for a number of years and I feel fortunate to break in with a broadcaster like him."
