Some surprising news from the hockey world on Monday. 

Longtime NHL announcer and play by play man Doc Emrick has decided to retire. 

The 74 year old has been the main man for NBC Sports since joining the network in 2011. 

"I hope I can handle retirement OK, especially since I've never done it before," Emrick told the New York Post. "But I've just been extremely lucky for 50 years. And NBC has been so good to me, especially since the pandemic, when I was allowed to work from home in a studio NBC created.

"Now, into my golden years, this just seemed to be the time that was right."

We wish him nothing but the best in retirement!
