Tom Chorske Named Radio Color Commentator

 
Former Devils Forward to Join Matt Loughlin in Devils/WFAN Radio Booth

East Rutherford, NJ - (September 8, 2006) – The New Jersey Devils named former forward Tom Chorske to its radio broadcast team as color commentator.  He will join Matt Loughlin in the Devils/Sports Radio 66 WFAN booth for the first time on Friday, October 6, when the club opens its 25th Anniversary season at Carolina. The announcement was made by Devils’ CEO/President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.

“Tom has stayed close to the organization by participating in the alumni association’s charity golf classic in recent years,’’ said Lamoriello. “We expect him to show the same enthusiasm and work ethic in the broadcast booth that he displayed on the ice. We look forward to him joining Matt Loughlin on our radio broadcast team.”

Chorske’s NHL career spanned ten seasons/596 games with Montreal, New Jersey, Ottawa, the NY Islanders, Washington, Calgary, and Pittsburgh from 1989-90 through 1999-00.  A member of New Jersey’s 1995 Stanley Cup Championship team, he was acquired from Montreal on September 20, 1991. While with the Devils, Chorske appeared in 244 games over four seasons from 1991-92 through 1994-95. The former winger was selected by the Canadiens in the first round of the 1985 Entry Draft after playing for Minneapolis (MN) Southwest High School.

Chorske, 39, was named the Minnesota high school ice hockey player of the year in 1985, and also played quarterback in 1984 and 1985.  He played collegiate hockey with the University of Minnesota (WCHA) between 1985 and 1989;  and in 1988-89, was tied for the Golden Gophers’ lead with 49 points, while being named to the league’s First All-Star Team.  Chorske left Minnesota after his sophomore year to join Team USA on its 1988 pre-Olympic Tour, but was the last player to be released.  He turned pro after his junior season with the Golden Gophers, and was a member of Sherbrooke’s AHL regular-season championship team in 1989-90. Chorske’s international experience also includes four World Championships with Team USA, as well as the 1986 World Junior Championships.  He saw his last action as a pro by appearing in 78 games with Houston (IHL) in 2000-01.

Upon retirement as a player, Chorske returned to the U. of Minnesota in 2002 to complete his undergraduate degree in business and management.  He most recently served as a senior account executive at the St. Paul, MN, office of Merrill Corp. Chorske served as color commentator for select Iowa Stars (AHL) television/radio/internet simulcasts last season.  He has also appeared in Minnesota Wild pre-season programming on FOX Sports North, as well as the 2004 Minnesota Boys’ State High School Tournament.  He was born September 18, 1966 in Minneapolis, MN.  Tom and his wife, Kristie, have three young children.
