CBC lands Milbury

Ex-Bruin Mike Milbury will be an analyst for Hockey Night in Canada on CBC in 2008-09, reuniting with Don Cherry, his former coach in Boston.

Milbury, who also worked for NESN, NBC, and TSN in 2007-08, will also contribute to Hockey Night in Canada’s Hot Stove segment. No word on whether the former Bruin coach and Islanders executive will continue his NESN duties in 2008-09.

Last year, the opinionated Milbury raised eyebrows when he criticized Phil Kessel on NBC. On the air, Milbury has been the subject of good-natured barbs from his colleagues about some of his ill-advised trades while serving as Islanders GM.
