Hockey Fans will Hear Rhode Islander During Stanley Cup Finals at TD Garden

Jun 14, 2013

When the Bruins host the Chicago Blackhawks for games three and four of the Stanley Cup finals, a voice from Rhode Island will be part of the games.

When Jim Martin’s working his day job, he’s the spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Providence. But during hockey season, his night job is being the public address announcer for TD Garden in Boston. Martin’s been announcing there for almost 20 years. Two years ago, he announced in his first Stanley Cup game.

“So I don’t think I really enjoyed it as much as I could have, and should have,” said Martin. “And I can assure you that I am going to enjoy every second of what’s going to transpire over the next week to ten days.”

Martin said the best part of working a Stanley Cup finals game, is just being a part of it all.
