newjerseydevils.com – The Devils will host “Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick Night’ during their Atlantic Division contest vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins at Prudential Center on Friday, January 30 at 7:00 PM.  On November 10, 2008, Emrick received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award from the Hockey Hall of Fame for his outstanding contributions as a hockey broadcaster.  The announcement was made by Devils’ President/CEO/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.

“Mike Emrick is the consummate professional who is the best at what he does, and is passionate about the game of hockey,” said Lamoriello.  “We are extremely fortunate to have Doc Emrick as our play-by-play announcer.”

Emrick is in his 16th consecutive season, 19th overall, as the television voice of the Devils, having served since 1993, as well as from 1983-86.  He is in his 21st year with MSG Networks, 29th in the National Hockey League, and 36th in professional hockey.  Emrick, who is in his fourth season as the league’s lead play-by-announcer on both VERSUS and NBC, has worked nearly 3,000 hockey games in his broadcast career.

He has been on the selection committee for the Hall of Fame for seven years and was added to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame selection committee last summer.  Emrick worked his fifth Winter Olympic Games in 2006, serving as the lead announcer for both men’s and women’s ice hockey in Torino, Italy.  He was named recipient of the 2004 Lester Patrick Award for service to hockey in the United States, has served as its emcee 16 times, and as a member of its selection committee three times.  Emrick received the 1999 Cable Ace Award for best play-by-play sportscaster nationally, and has received the New York region Emmy for on-camera achievement on five occasions.  He has been vice president of the NHL Broadcasters Association since 1985, and has broadcast hockey for CSTV, ESPN, and FOX.  Emrick has contributed to nhl.com, while providing voice-overs for Hockey Week, NHL Power Week, the NHL’s Stanley Cup video, and Sony’s NHL Video Game.

Entering 2008-09, Emrick worked on 20 consecutive Stanley Cup Playoffs, ten Stanley Cup Finals series, and seven NHL All-Star Games.  He previously served as the television voice of the Philadelphia Flyers, 1988-93, as well as a telecaster for PRISM-TV, 1980-83.  Emrick spent time as a radio broadcaster for more than 100 hockey games on WNBC/WFAN AM, 1983-88.  His other sports credits include:  the National Football League, NCAA men’s basketball, Olympic water polo, track, and luge.  He began his career serving as radio/TV broadcaster and public relations director of the AHL’s Maine Mariners, 1977-80, and the IHL’s Port Huron Flags, 1973-77.  Emrick earned his PhD in radio-television-film from Bowling Green State University in 1976.

A native of LaFontaine, IN, Mike and his wife, Joyce Anne, are joined by two canine children and three horses in St. Clair, MI.
