You can watch the announcement below.

Damn, there are some retirements that just hit differently in the world of sports. There are some retirements that feel like a titan is leaving the industry.

There’s no better way to sum up how this retirement from Emrick feels. We’re not just talking about a guy who worked NHL games.

We’re talking about a guy known as the voice of NHL games.

If there was every anyone involved with the NHL and broadcasting who has etched their place in history and cemented their legacy, it’s Doc Emrick.

We’ll probably never see anyone like him ever again.

Props to Emirck on an insanely successful career, and I hope he enjoys the retirement that he’s rightfully earned.
