Elliotte Friedman (born September 27, 1970) is a Canadian sports journalist. He currently serves as a hockey reporter for Sportsnet.

Early life and education

He attended the University of Western Ontario but never graduated.


He began his broadcast career for Toronto sports radio station The Fan 590 in 1994 and did play-by-play for Toronto Raptors games on both radio and television and reported on Toronto Blue Jays games in 1998. He did freelance for the London Free Press and the Toronto Star. He was awarded the Telemedia Reporter of the Year award in 1996. Friedman then worked for The Score network, before joining CBC Sports in 2003. At CBC, Friedman was a reporter for Hockey Night in Canada; the studio host for the final two seasons of the CFL on CBC and for some Toronto Raptors games; and participated in the CBC's Olympic Games coverage.[1] He also continued to appear regularly on The Fan 590 (now Sportsnet 590).

After Rogers Media secured a 12-year exclusive contract for NHL rights, under which Rogers' Sportsnet would produce game broadcasts for both Rogers channels and CBC, Friedman joined Sportsnet full-time and will participate in its hockey broadcasts.[2]
