Your favorite arena PA announcer

Who is your favorite arena announcers that you have heard while watching a game or/at a game? I'm gonna be a bit of a homer but I love Phil Hulett (Ducks PA announcer). I love his "Anaheim Ducks goooooooooaaaaaal!"

And when we're on a power play:

"Alright fans get loud your Anaheim Ducks are oooooooooooooooooooooooon a Power Play!!!!!"

Montreal's announcer gives me chills when the Canadiens come out on the ice during the intro.

What about you guys?

John Barbero is the best PA Announcer I've ever heard anywhere. Sporting events, public gatherings, plays.....just so good.

The Caps guy is incredible. Best in the league, imo.

Starts around the 2:00 mark:

For some reason I kinda like the Avs guy. He talks with such a loud deep voice.

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAvalanche GOALLLL, his [number] goal of the season..." I think is pretty cool.

No other arena voices really stand out to me.

Caps guy is annoying as hell.

Avs fan saying the legend Alan Roach is the best in the league. He was so good he did the Olympic games in Vancouver.

Such a shame...He was awesome. he was the perfect PA announcer. The new Kings guy SUCKS the biggest one he's awful.

Gotta go with the first post. Big time homer vote but definitely the Ducks guy. He's not super cheesy and he doesn't try super hard (unlike the Pens guy who is just embarrassing..SIDDNNNAAAYYY CCCRROSSSBAAAYYY) but he just gets the job done and really gets the crowd involved.

I can tell you which ones annoy me the most lol

1) Kings
2) Sharks
3) Pens

The Rangers. When he announces the goal scorer and the players who got the assist, he doesn't go nuts.

I like the guy from Boston because he winds up when he announces one minute in the period.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOne remaining in the period!

Gets me every time

Alan Roach (Avs) is the best. He does the Pro Bowl, Super Bowl, and Broncos as well.

Panthers PA announcer is probably one of the worst. His voice always cracks to a level of a 9yo boy everytime he tries to announce a Panthers (helium kicks in) pooowerplay.
