Gordon "Gord" Matthew Miller (born June 21, 1964) is a Canadian sportscaster for Bell Media's sports cable network TSN. He is one of two primary play-by-play announcers for the NHL on TSN and is the lead announcer for TSN's coverage of IIHF World Under-20 Hockey Championships. He also covers the annual NHL Entry Draft and does occasional play-by-play for the NHL on NBC and the NBC Sports Network in the United States.

Career

Prior to joining TSN, Miller worked for CBC in Edmonton, where he covered the Edmonton Oilers. He joined TSN as a reporter in 1990 and occasionally calling NHL hockey when needed. In 1994, he began doing hockey play-by-play regularly as the lead announcer on the network's Canadian Hockey League coverage, including the Memorial Cup, as well as more frequent NHL assignments, including studio host duties for TSN's NHL coverage. That year also began his run as a part of TSN's annual World Junior Ice Hockey Championships coverage, first as a rinkside reporter and secondary play-by-play caller, eventually becoming the lead announcer in 2002. He also covered the IIHF World Championships and Women's World Championships.

From 1998 to 2001, he was host of That's Hockey and then returned to the broadcast booth in 2001 as the English television play-by-play voice of the Montreal Canadiens on TSN's regional feed for one season.

In 2002, Miller became TSN's lead hockey play-by-play announcer when it reacquired national broadcast rights to the NHL. He was teamed up with Pierre McGuire until McGuire left TSN in 2011. In 2010, Miller and TSN colleague Chris Cuthbert were selected by Canada's Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium as play-by-play announcers for the men's ice hockey tournament at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Since TSN lost the national contract in 2014 to rival Sportsnet and its parent Rogers Media, he now calls play-by-play for Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators regional games on TSN, while continuing to be the primary play-by-play broadcaster on the network's international hockey coverage.

In addition to hockey and CFL football, Miller has done occasional play-by-play for Toronto Blue Jays games in the past and covered events such as the World Series, the British Open, and the World Figure Skating Championship. He was nominated for a Gemini Award in 2008 in the Best Sports Play-by-Play Announcer category for the 2008 IIHF World Junior Championship gold medal game.

He worked on the NBC Sports Network's Friday Night Ice college hockey telecasts, and has called several more college and NHL games for the American network.

Miller called the track and field events at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London for Canada's Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium, including the 100m final featuring Usain Bolt.

In 2013, Miller was inducted into the IIHF Hall of Fame when he was awaraded the Paul Loicq Award for his contributions as a broadcaster.[1]
