I grew up listening to Connolly calling AHL games in Halifax and then later on calling the Mooseheads games. He was very well liked for his infectious personalty. Know for being a public address announcer for the Halifax Mooseheads
until his retirement three years ago. The press box at the Halifax Metro Centre now bears his name.
