I Challenge Niko- Center ice shootout with the voice of the Syracuse Crunch
The Syracuse Crunch has a fantastic track record of its play-by-play announcers moving on to the NHL, Bob McElligott went to the Columbus Blue Jackets back in 2009 and just this summer Dan D'Uva became the first ever voice of the Las Vegas Golden Knights.
Enter Lukas Favale.
Favale takes over for D'Uva this year as the newest announcer for the Crunch. He graduated from Syracuse University in 2014 and most recently served as the voice of the Elmira Jackals and Adirondack Thunder in the ECHL.
On Wednesday, Favale made his "I Challenge Niko" debut.
