Fox Sports Florida will hire a replacement to fill the role former Florida Panthers player Bill Lindsay was let go from on Monday.
Lindsay announced that he would no longer be part of the Panthers' Fox Sports Florida broadcast. He was part of the television team for the past six years.
There was thought that Lindsay's role was being eliminated, however, that's not the case. I've learned that Fox Sports Florida currently has several candidates ready for final interviews to take the job. I'm told all of the candidates have considerable hockey knowledge.
Fox Sports Florida hires the talent for the Panthers broadcasts, but the team has some say in who is selected. The candidates will be meeting with team executives very soon.
Update - 12:20p ET Fox Sports Florida has announced Randy Moller will be the new television analyst.
