TORONTO (April 21, 2014) – Florida Panthers’ star goaltender Roberto Luongo and ex-Winnipeg Jets head coach Claude Noel are joining NHL ON TSN’s First Round coverage of the 2014 STANLEY CUP® PLAYOFFS. The NHL ON TSN guest analysts have each signed on for back-to-back appearances, with Noel confirmed for April 25-26 and Luongo for April 27-28.

Luongo and Noel are appearing alongside NHL ON TSN’s acclaimed panel of host James Duthie, Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, and analysts Jeff O’Neill and Jamie McLennan.

Noel – one of the NHL’s most quotable coaches before his dismissal by the Jets this season – brings his outspoken analysis to the TSN Studio from April 25-26, as first revealed earlier today in an exclusive interview with Winnipeg Free Press sports columnist and TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg host Gary Lawless.

With a unique sense of humour that makes him a must-follow on Twitter, Luongo is a fan-favourite on and off the ice. The two-time Olympic gold medallist adds his insight to the NHL ON TSN panel from April 27-28.
