John Walton to fill in for a sick Joe Beninati, team up with Craig Laughlin during Game Six broadcast
Longtime NBC Sports Washington play-by-play man, Joe Beninati, will miss tonight’s telecast due to illness. A source confirmed to RMNB that Capitals Radio’s John Walton will take the reins and fill in with Beninati feeling under the weather. Zack Fisch will slide over to Walton’s spot on the radio broadcast with the Hershey Bears eliminated from the postseason.
The Athletic’s Tarik El-Bashir was the first to report the news.
