"Doc" Emrick is the best hockey announcer out there. He currently does play-by-play for the New Jersey
Devils, but he also does national NHL coverage for NBC and Versus. His knowledge of the game and its history is second to none. His mastery of the English language is demonstrated when
such as "paraphernalia" to describe goalie equipment
and "pirouette" when
a player spins and does a 360. He is called Doc because he has a Ph.D. in communications, and he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008.
I love listening
to Doc Emrick & Chico Resch call Devils
"Langenbrunner delays then fires
to Parise, he shoots and scores!"
