Mike Milbury Returns to VERSUS Studio Tonight
December 27, 2011 3 Comments
So it turns out the amount of time NBC/CBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury will sit out ends up at about nine days.
After taking a leave of absence from his work on both networks (though his deal with CBC runs out after the calendar hits 2012) due to potential assault charges against a minor at a hockey game (though it was eventually determined there was not enough evidence to charge him) Milbury will return to VERSUS’ studio tonight, on NHL Live‘s pre- and post-game coverage of the St. Louis/Detroit game, according to a source.
Milbury will also appear on CBC this Saturday, in what will be his final appearance on the network, as well as NBC’s coverage of the Winter Classic on Monday, where he’ll work the network’s studio show with Bob Costas and Jeremy Roenick. Roenick, Eddie Olczyk and Pierre McGuire had substituted for Milbury on VERSUS during his absence.
