With 100° temperatures burning up most of the country it may seem like an odd time to talk about the NHL.

But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to praise Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick, the outstanding broadcaster elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame the other day.

While Emrick does great work on nationally broadcast games, it’s appropriate his main gig is with the New Jersey Devils.

Emrick is very similar to Devils goalie Martin Brodeur in that both are consistently superb in their efforts.

Emrick is so smooth it’s ridiculous, and he probably matches up against any broadcaster in ANY sport.

He’s a low-key, no ego guy that doesn’t seek out fame, though it certainly found Emrick.

This well-deserved honor is a perfect order for this ‘Doc’.
