Emrick to receive Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for contributions to broadcasting
newjerseydevils.com – Mike 'Doc' Emrick, widely recognized as the voice of the NHL in the United States, will receive the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for outstanding contributions as a hockey broadcaster, the Hockey Hall of Fame announced Thursday.
 
Emrick, who is entering his 16th season (19th overall) as the television voice of the Devils, has been the lead play-by-play announcer for the NHL on Versus and the NHL on NBC since 2005. He began his hockey-broadcasting career in 1973 calling games for the IHL Port Huron Flags. Over the past two decades, he also has served as the voice of the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers.
 
"Mike has been the pre-eminent hockey play-by-play broadcaster in the United States for many years,” said Chuck Kaiton, President, NHL Broadcasters’ Association. “His dedication to hockey and his enthusiasm for broadcasting make him worthy of this honor.”

It also was announced that long-time Canadian Press reporter Neil Steven will receive the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for print journalism.
 
Emrick and Stevens will receive the awards at a luncheon presentation on Monday, November 10, 2008. This year’s Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Weekend will take place November 7-9.
 
This year’s Hockey Hall of Fame Inductees will be announced on Tuesday, June 17.
 
The Foster Hewitt Memorial Award is named in honour of the late “Voice of Hockey” in Canada. It was first presented in 1984 by the NHL Broadcasters’ Association in recognition of members of the radio and television industry who have made outstanding contributions to their profession and to the game of hockey.  
 
Named in honour of the late Montreal newspaper reporter, the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award was first presented in 1984 by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association in recognition of distinguished members of the newspaper profession whose words have brought honour to journalism and to the game of hockey.
