Barnaby replaces Melrose at ESPN Oct. 8th

You already knew this, but it wasn't official until today. Here's the release from ESPN:
Matthew Barnaby, who played 15 seasons in the National Hockey League before retiring in 2007, has joined ESPN as a studio analyst.  He will appear on SportsCenter, ESPNEWS and ESPN.com, as well as other ESPN platforms.  Barnaby will make his debut during the 6 p.m. ET SportsCenter on Wednesday, Oct. 8.  He will generally work Wednesdays and Thursdays during the season and every game night during the playoffs. 

"I am honored and privileged to have the opportunity to work for ESPN,” said Barnaby.  “I've only been out of the game for a short time and I look forward to bringing cutting-edge insight to ESPN's viewers."
I'm actually a little sad we won't get to see Barry Melrose's slicked-up mullet on ESPN anymore, but maybe we'll be able to catch it in a highlight or two.
