Mike "Doc" Emrick


Mike Emrick is set to be honored by the Devils, prior to the February 24, 2012 game against the Vancouver Canucks.

I assume that particular game is going to be televised on Verses, meaning "Doc" is going to be at the Rock anyway.

Lou Lamoriello had some nice things to say about Emrick in a statement that was released today, Monday October 17, 2011. "We were fortunate to have ‘Doc’ as part of our organization for more than 20 years. Mike and Joyce Emrick will always be part of the Devils’ family.  We look forward to welcoming them back to Prudential Center."

I know that I share Lou's feeling that Mike Emrick is a part of the Devil's family (I never meet his wife, of course, but I'm sure that she's a wonderful person as well). I miss him calling Devils games, sorely, and I'm certain that I'm not alone in that feeling.

"It has always been an honor to be associated with the New Jersey Devils," said Emrick. "Part of it is the commitment to winning, part of it is the friends you make within the broadcast team, the hockey team, and the fans. Joyce and I could never imagine this kind of recognition and were speechless when we received Lou's call. We thank all who have been so good to us and I will certainly look forward to saying ‘thank you’ in person."

Thank you Mike Emerick, for your years of service to the team. Here's to many happy years in "semi-retirement" calling games on Verses. Also, thank you Lou for choosing to recognize an invaluable (ex-)member of the organization, even if he was never actually on the team payroll.
