Welcome home, Daddy!
Jason Demers is returning to the San Jose Sharks, this time on the air, as part of NBC Sports California’s “Sharks Pregame Live” and “Sharks Postgame Live”.
Demers makes his Sharks broadcast debut tonight, as San Jose visits the Nashville Predators. “Sharks Pregame Live” begins at 6:30 PM PT.
The San Jose Sharks’ 2008 seventh-round pick, who patrolled the San Jose blueline from 2009 to 2014, also suited up for the Dallas Stars, Florida Panthers, Arizona Coyotes, and Edmonton Oilers in a 700-game NHL career that appears to have ended last season.
Demers has made a quick transition to the air since then, making his NHL Network and PHNX Sports debuts last month.
Demers, 35, spoke with San Jose Hockey Now about his NBC Sports California role, keeping the door open for a comeback, wanting to inject more personality into hockey broadcasts, which ex-Sharks teammates were surprisingly hilarious, and some candid thoughts about this year’s San Jose Sharks.
