Devils Honor Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick Tomorrow Night

Longtime New Jersey Devils announcing great Mike “Doc” Emrick, who retired after last season, will get a special night.

Tomorrow night, the Devils will honor the Hall of Fame broadcaster before their game with the Canucks.

MSG Plus is joining in the festivities with extra coverage for its legendary voice starting with Devils Game Night at 6:30 p.m. and that continues for the live pre-game presentation.

“Doc is among the rare few broadcasters who elevates the game and the moment simply by his presence, and we were proud to have him on our air,” said Dan Ronayne, executive vice president and general manager, MSG Networks. ‘This is a great honor for Doc and we’re excited to bring Friday’s festivities to Devils fans.”

Emrick had a 23-year career with MSG Network, including an incredible 21-year run in East Rutherford. Along the way, he netted seven New York Emmy Awards. He still calls the NHL nationally for NBC Sports.  

“It was an amazing time – I miss the players and the fans, and the production crew that traveled to all the games – we were a well-bonded group,” said Emrick. “This is an opportunity to say thanks to everybody all in one place,” said Emrick.

Longtime sportscaster Steve Cangialosi, with MSG Network since 2000, has been promoted to New Jersey Devils play-by-play announcer on MSG Plus.  

Cangialosi replaces iconic play-by-play man Mike “Doc” Emrick who retired during the offseason.

“It’s an honor to be given the opportunity to follow one of the great broadcasters of all time,” said Cangialosi. “Doc formed a very special bond with Devils’ players and fans for 21 seasons through his excellence in the booth and his wonderful approach to people. The Devils are a first-class organization, and I hope to represent the team and the great tradition of NHL hockey on MSG Networks as best as I can.” 

Cangialosi joined the Devils beat on a regular basis in 2006 as host and reporter. In addition, he serves as play-by-play announcer for the New York Red Bulls on MSG Network.

Longtime New Jersey Devils broadcaster Mike “Doc” Emrick gave up his duties last week with MSG Network. As we reported at the time, the acclaimed play-by-play man will concentrate on calling national games on NBC and Versus.

“It was something  that I had, at least, given some thought to during the playoffs,” Emrick tells FishbowlNY.

Emrick, who’ll turn 65 on August 1, was given time after the season to weigh the tough decision.
