Randy Hahn (born October 21, 1958) is a play-by-play commentator for the San Jose Sharks on NBC Sports California, and has held that position for over 20 seasons. He has over 30 years of broadcast experience, mostly in hockey. He broadcast his 1,000th Sharks game on December 5, 2009, when the Sharks faced the Calgary Flames in San Jose. Along with analyst and ex-partner Drew Remenda, Hahn has won five Northern California Emmy Awards in the "On Camera Sports" section; one in 1999, and others in 2002, 2005, and 2008. Hahn was a PBP announcer in Konami's NHL Blades of Steel '99 and 2K Sports' NHL 2K9, NHL 2K10, and NHL 2K11.
Early life and career
Shortly before the Sharks were formed, Hahn was vice president of a non-profit organization known as Pro Hockey San Jose. The purpose was to draw attention to the newly approved arena in the city, and hopefully acquire an NHL team for San Jose (both the team and the arena did come to fruition).
On June 8, 1995, Hahn was arrested on a charge of drug possession after signing for a package containing amphetamines that was delivered to his home in Orland Park, Illinois. The charges were dropped a week later after the police realized that Hahn had been set up by a stalker who was after his wife, who was then the morning meteorologist for WMAQ-TV in Chicago.
