Farewell Dan Terhaar

Friday, the Wild informed TV play by play announcer Dan Terhaar he will not be returning for his eighth season behind the mic. Terhaar certainly was not the best at calling games (Thus, the creation of FSN Bingo from First Round Bust), but he was by far not the worst either. Terhaar didn't have the fortune of calling many great moments in Wild history during his time with the team, but he did have a few. And we will pay tribute to those moments here.

Wild vs Colorado 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs Game 2

Wild vs Chicago January 2010

I tried finding video of Marian Gaborik's 5 goal game, but the only video's of it did not have audio of Terhaar.

As we look ahead to Terhaar's replacement, one can only hope the FSN has little say in that decision (Otherwise look for Anthony Lapanta to get the honors). It would be interesting to see who's out there for the job. I wouldn't expect a replacement to be hired until after the Stanley Cup Playoffs, so we will just have to wait and see.

But one last time, we bid farewell to Dan Terhaar.
