Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick Gives Up MSG Duties, Devils Announcing to Focus on NBC and Versus Work

Legendary NHL broadcaster Mike Emrick is adjusting his schedule. ”Doc” is giving up his role as longtime New Jersey Devils announcer with MSG Network to concentrate on calling hockey games on NBC and Versus.

Emrick, who turns 65 this month, addressed Devils fans in a letter.

“The people at both of these organizations have been incredibly loyal to me and have been very patient waiting until mid-summer for me to reach this decision. Both have also provided me only positive memories, support, and encouragement over these many seasons.

…I wish MSG Network and the Devils and Devils fans nothing but the greatest success in the years to come.”

Emrick became synonymous with the Devils, spending 21 years as the team’s play-by-play voice.
