The New Jersey Devils announced today that former goaltender and fan favorite Glenn “Chico” Resch will serve as a radio analyst and ambassador for the 2017-2018 season. Resch will join veteran play-by-play voice Matt Loughlin for Devils coverage on WFAN-FM/AM and The One Jersey Network via WFAN.com. Resch will also serve as a team ambassador, participating at community relations and corporate events, youth hockey clinics, and in grassroots initiatives on behalf of the Devils.
Resch, who played six seasons as a goaltender for the Colorado Rockies/Devils organization from 1980-1986, previously served as a team broadcaster for MSG Networks’ game coverage for 18 years.
“I have an incredible passion for the New Jersey Devils and the game of hockey, and it’s exciting to be a part of this organization as it builds around such promising young players,” Resch said. “I know firsthand how dedicated the Devils fanbase is and I’m looking forward to engaging with them through my work as a broadcaster and team ambassador.”
For the 13th consecutive season, WFAN will serve as the flagship station of the New Jersey Devils. Starting this season, Devils games can also be heard on The One Jersey Network through WFAN.com, including this Saturday’s season opener at 2 p.m. at Prudential Center vs. the Colorado Avalanche. The partnership allows Devils fans to access the live radio broadcast wherever they are, including online at WFAN.com.
