In case you missed the news yesterday, longtime NHL insider Nick Kypreos has parted ways with Rogers owned broadcaster Sportsnet. Kypreos made the announcement himself, issuing a statement on Twitter.

Check it out:

Kypreos has been with Sportsnet since the company’s inception back in 1998. He was instrumental in helping the network gain legitimacy in its early days and has been Sportsnet’s biggest insider for over two decades. 

He was a regular on Sportsnet’s Hockey Central radio show and a panelist on Rogers branded broadcasts like CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada.

Shortly after Kypreos’ announcement, his Hockey Central co-host Doug Maclean also announced that he and Sportsnet have parted ways.

Now, it appears that fellow Hockey Central panelist John Shannon has also been shown the door at Sportsnet.

No confirmation from Shannon himself or from Sportsnet, but it’s worth noting that Shannon himself reached out to both Kypreos and Maclean on Twitter yesterday to express his sadness over them losing their jobs.

The only question left is… who’s next?
