One of only two people to have worked for the Admirals in every season since the team’s inception, Pat “The Red Whistle” Shetler has been the color commentator for the Admirals since 1989. A native of Sydney, Nova Scotia, Shetler played junior hockey in the Maritimes and Québec before beginning an officiating career that eventually led to nearly 500 games in the NHL as a linesman. He worked in All-Star Games and two Stanley Cup Finals. Following his career as a linesman, Shetler served as the play-by-play announcer for the Philadelphia Flyers and a hockey executive with the International Hockey League in Saginaw, Michigan, and with the Southern Hockey League in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
