Are you freaking kidding me?? That was one of the most atrocious butchering of a pair of national anthems I've ever heard. I don't give a kentucky fried f**k who's singing them, personalizing a country's national anthem in order to make your "performance" unique is unclassy and never fails to sound retarded. And that's not even getting into the fact that I was listening to it on the radio and thought it was a girl the whole time...

I don't understand all the posts as of late about this kid. Does his entire extended family post on CDC or something? We have a great amount of differing anthem singers, yet every time this Cole guy steps on the ice, a battalion of hockey moms storm the forum to congratulate him and sing his praise. Am I missing something here?

I agree. He's a phenomenal singer, but that personalized touch just killed it. I also hate it when anthem singers sing "In all OUR sons command". Drives me nuts. It's THY, people, THY sons.

Meh he's obviously a talented singer but he didn't do a good job of singin the anthems. Like others I have said I wish singers would just sing the anthem properly rather than trying to show off their skills by adding "artistic flair". It 's the national anthem before a hockey game, not a performance on American Idol. Give me Mark Donnelly any day, keeps it simple yet gets the crowd pumped.

Seemed to be fairly decent about 14 months ago. Didn't hear him last night.


I love rock and roll, just put another dime in the juice box baby.

Joined CDC today just to talk about Cole Armour? Are you the kid's agent or something? There are many great anthem singers out there, Cole is not one of them.

I listened to him sing Hallelujah (), and he does a fine job. I'm not out there to criticize a kid, but I don't understand the influx in posts about him. There have been many young kids to sing the National Anthem at sporting events.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Was on my way home and listening to it on the radio. Good singer but I wasn't impressed with his performance of the anthems.

He's no Mark Donnelly.

must sound really good in the arena but pretty bad over the radio.

I was at the Islanders game a couple years ago to see Grabner, and this kid sang. Lit the arena up for the AMERICAN anthem haha, everyone went nuts after O Canada. For those of you that listened on the radio, know that he sounds better live

well I'm sorry that gd is soo perfect

he needs practice on this one.

He's young so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

I thought it was a girl listening on the radio...and not a good one at that. I'm sure he's a good singer, but he sure didn't sing a good anthem.

Is he a pre-teen or something?

If it was American Idol he would have been stopped halfway through the American anthem.

He's a kid, so I won't say too much about how I really feel. Was listening on the radio....that little run at the end of the US anthem really strayed from what an anthem should be in the traditional sense. Why do people feel the need to do that? (Does anyone remember the SNL anthem skit?)

Again, he's young...so at least there's time to steer him to the right track. Can never be too hard on a kid because it takes a lot of nerve to stand there in front of thousands of people...props for that.
