TTM Success: Randy Moller

  Randy Moller was a part of two "firsts" during the 1982 World Junior Hockey Championships.  He helped Team Canada win it's first Gold Medal in the tournament's history and he was part of the first ever pair of brothers to play for Team Canada in the same year.  Randy, and his brother Mike, were the only set of siblings to play on the same Team Canada squad until the Hamilton brothers, Dougie and Freddie did it in 2012.  Randy played 815 games over a 13 year career.  He played a defensive style of game but he wasn't afraid to rough it up, earning over 100 minutes in penalties in 11 of his 13 seasons.  He also played a large role in the Good Friday Massacre, albeit, Chris Nilan didn't give him much of a choice.  Moller retired in 1995 as a Florida Panther and currently does play-by-play on the radio for the Panthers and is also the Panther's Alumni president.

Here's a clip of some Moller's more memorable goal calls as a play-by-play man.
