Howie Rose (born in 1954) is a Play-by-play announcer for the New York Islanders.

New York IslandersEdit

Rose is also the play-by-play announcer for Islanders telecasts where he now works alongside a yet to be named color commentator. Beginning with the 2009-10 NHL season, Rose's work will be simulcast on radio as well. Rose replaced Jiggs McDonald on Islanders broadcasts in 1995 and was previously partnered with Ed Westfall, Joe Micheletti, and Billy Jaffe.

New York RangersEdit

Prior to the Islanders, Rose worked as a play-by-play radio announcer for the New York Rangers, and was paired mainly with Sal Messina. He is most recognized by Rangers fans for his call of "Matteau! Matteau! Matteau!" made when Stephane Matteau scored the game-winning goal in double-overtime of Game 7 of the 1994 NHL Eastern Conference Finals against the New Jersey Devils.
