  Jiggs McDonald’s 2011-12 Broadcast Schedule

Among the guests on my show last night was Jiggs McDonald, one of hockey’s all-time great hockey broadcasters. It’s always a pleasure to get a chance to speak with Jiggs, and a treat for myself and many longtime Islanders fans when we get to hear him call the action. Last night Jigg’s informed us that he will be broadcasting 9 games for the Islanders this season, all of which will be on the road.

Jiggs only visit to the Nassau Coliseum will come on November 19th, when the Islanders take on the Boston Bruins. The Islanders will honor Ed Westfall on that night as a part of their “Decade Nights” taking place throughout the season. While Jiggs will not be in the broadcast booth that evening, he will MC the pre-game festivities honoring Westfall, who sat beside him on Islanders telecasts for many years.

Here’s the list of Islanders games Jiggs will be calling the play-by-play for this season:
