Steve Cangialosi Named New Jersey Devils TV Play-By-Play Voice

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.
