Sad news out of Hockeytown today. Red Wings announcer and PA announcer Budd Lynch has passed away at 95. Lynch was one of the lone ties to the Winged Wheel glory days of the 50's to the Cup winning teams of the 90's and 2000's. His distinctive voice had been gracing Joe Louis Arena since 1982.

Bud announced "The STANLEY cup" and "Number 19 Steve YZZZEERR man" to the Red Wings faithful for over 3 decades. Here's some video of Budd's 60th anniversary with the team in 2009.
