Is Beyak "the guy" in Winnipeg?

Sources are suggesting that Dennis Beyak will handle the play-by-play call for the Winnipeg Jets this season on TSN television broadcasts. There might also be some radio work involved.

Combine his extensive WHL management and broadcasting background, along with his recent NHL broadcasting reponsibilities in the Toronto market, and Beyak would be a good pick for this position.

Given he is Manitoba-born and raised, well, that makes him a great pick!

August 25: Finally a report on this! When he walked into my office last week to say good-bye for 2011, I was ecstatic! Passed over by the Edmonton Oilers last season when they chose to baffle Canadians by hiring an American voice, Beyak will be awesome in Winnipeg. And I hope this is a "retirement" contract for him...a good guy in his 50's who has busted his ass in an industry that doesn't always treat the good guys in a way they deserve to be treated.

Atta boy Dennis!
