 Among the content on the team’s network will be podcasts, roundtable discussions, interviews with players and coaches, replays of recent and classic games, and much more. includes apps that allow listeners to tune in on their smartphones in case they aren’t near a computer.

Already the team has used the system to broadcast preseason games, the Neely Cup finals and roundtable discussions. With this new network, legendary broadcaster Dean “Scooter” Vrooman will be taking an increased role with the organization helping provide content.

“Having our own dedicated online network will be exciting for Winterhawks fans who want more team content along with games. With the technology advancing all the time, and a greater demand for content, this system will be a perfect fit for our fans,” said Portland Winterhawks President Doug Piper. “We’re also happy to be back with Alpha Broadcasting on Friday nights. They have been a great partner over the last two seasons and we’re excited we can continue to work with them.”

In addition, the Winterhawks are also announcing that Todd Vrooman and Andy Kemper are switching roles on the broadcasts, with Vrooman taking over play-by-play duties for all broadcasts home and away, while Kemper will be the analyst for all home games and select road games. Vrooman has also been hired by the Winterhawks full-time as the broadcast communications manager, responsible for all content that will appear on the team’s station.

“Andy expressed to us a desire to spend less time on the road in order to be home with his family more often during the season, a request we are happy to accommodate,” said Piper. “Todd has done a tremendous job as analyst for the past two seasons, and we know he will do a great job with play-by-play, as well as providing unique, entertaining content on our online network.”

Fans who enjoy bringing their radios to games can still listen to FM transmissions in the arena: 98.1 FM in the Rose Garden and 96.5 FM in Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

I really enjoy your play by play broadcast. You are both very descriptive and bring the game to usquite well over the network. I appreciate knowing the colors of jerseys, playing right to left, when the plays are warranted or a cheap shot, etc. Keep up the great work. Best wishes to the team for a successful season..
Shoot the puck!
