Jiggs McDonald is synonymous with the Islanders and their Stanley Cup winning teams from the 1980s. We are still lucky enough to get to hear one of hockey’s all-time great broadcasters call the game for the Islanders from time to time.
Tonight in St. Louis he will again be filling in for Howie Rose to give the play-by-play when the Islanders take on the Blues.
The Islanders seem to respond well with Jiggs in the booth- the team is 14-2-3 in the last 19 games he has called the action.
Here are the remaining Islanders games that we can look forward to hearing Jiggs behind the mic.
