Meet The Hosts:
Dave Goucher enters his twelfth season of Bruins play-by-play on flagship 98.5 The Sports Hub. He’s been named New England’s top radio play-by-play announcer on three occasions by the Associated Press. A native of Pawtucket, RI, he graduated in 1993 from Boston University where he broadcast Terriers hockey from 1991-1993. He then moved to pro hockey with Wheeling of the East Coast Hockey League, doing play-by-play for the Thunderbirds for two seasons from 1993-1995. He spent five years as the radio voice of the Bruins’ AHL affiliate in Providence, including their Calder Cup-winning season in 1998-99, in addition to serving as the team’s director of broadcasting and communications from 1995-2000. In addition to his play-by-play duties, he has served as a sports anchor and reporter for WBZ Radio and he’s also done play-by-play for selected NHL Radio ‘Game of the Week’ broadcasts on the Westwood One Radio Network.
Bob Beers enters his fourteenth season as action analyst on Bruins radio. He came to the broadcast booth following an eight-year professional career as a defenseman in the NHL and with minor league affiliates. Drafted by Boston as their tenth pick, 210th overall, in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft, he played three-plus seasons with the Bruins organization before moving to NHL stops in Tampa Bay, Edmonton and the NY Islanders for four seasons. He returned to the Bruins for the 1996-97 season before retiring as a full-time player in August, 1997. He also played parts of two seasons with the Bruins’ AHL affiliate in Providence as his radio schedule allowed in both 1998-99 and 1999-2000. Beers has also worked with NHL Radio and Versus television broadcasts during the playoffs.
