Former Lightning general manager Phil Esposito is returning to the city where he won two Stanley Cups.
He has been hired as a color commentator for Boston's WSBK-TV.
Terms of the one-year deal were not disclosed.
Esposito, the fourth-leading goal scorer in NHL history, and former Boston teammate Gerry Cheevers will split time with play-by-play man Dave Shea.
"Both of them are really legends up here," WSBK-TV program director Lee Kinberg said of the hockey Hall of Famers who led the Bruins to championships in 1970 and 1972.
