Pang grew up playing hockey in Nepean, Ontario for the Nepean Raiders. As a youth, he played alongside many future NHLers, including Doug Smith, Dan Quinn and Steve Yzerman.
Pang played in many prestigious minor hockey tournaments as a youth goalie. He played for the West Ottawa Golden Knights alongside former NHLer Dan Quinn, in the Quebec Pee Wee Tournament, and for the Nepean Raiders Major Midget team that represented Ottawa in the Air Canada Cup as a 15 year old.
He was the 1st goalie ever drafted by the expansion Belleville Bulls, winning their 1st ever game in the OHL. He was traded to the Ottawa 67's, where he won the Memorial Cup in 1984, while garnering the Top goalie and All-Star team awards.
Standing 5'5", Pang was the 2nd shortest goalie behind only Roy "Shrimp" Worters to play in the NHL. He was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team in 1988, and was a finalist for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's Rookie of the year, won by Hall of Famer Joe Nieuwendyk. His first win was recorded on October 18, 1987 against the Winnipeg Jets.
Pang was signed as a free agent by the Chicago Blackhawks on August 15, 1984. He also set a Blackhawks goaltender's record with six assists in the 1987–1988 NHL season, and had 9 points in his brief NHL career. Pang suffered a career-ending knee injury on September 21, 1990, during training camp. During his playing career, he was known to vomit before each game, as Glenn Hall had.
Today, Pang is a color commentator for the St. Louis Blues TV broadcasts and a part time analyst for TSN. He was recently named an "Inside the Glass" reporter for regular season and playoff action for NHL on NBC. Pang also contributes to Home Ice, XM Satellite Radio's all-hockey channel. Before joining the Blues, he was the color commentator for the Phoenix Coyotes,
Pang has worked as an analyst for 3 Winter Olympics. In 1998, in Nagano, Japan, he was assigned as the 1st Olympic reporter that received full access "between the benches" with no glass separating Pang from the benches, on CBS. He also worked as an on ice analyst/reporter in 2002 for NBC and in 2010 he worked as a studio analyst for CTV/TSN alongside Bob McKenzie, Nick Kypreos, Daren Millard and James Duthie.
On July 9, 2009, it was announced that he would be the color commentator for the St. Louis Blues TV broadcasts, with former color man Bernie Federko, who moved between the benches, while John Kelly and Pang work together in the broadcast booth.
Pang's best friend is former Detroit Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman; he was the best man at Yzerman's wedding. On January 2, 2007, Pang served as the master of ceremonies for Yzerman's jersey retirement ceremony, which was held at Joe Louis Arena prior to a game between the Red Wings and the Anaheim Ducks.
Pang's father, Gerry Pang, was an associate coach with the NAHL's Fernie Ghostriders in 2003-2004.
