NBC’s Emrick Leaves Devils


Play-by-play voice Mike Emrick will no longer split time between his local and national commitments.

Emrick announced Thursday that he will end his relationship with the New Jersey Devils and MSG Network, though he will remain the lead play-by-play voice of the NHL on NBC and Versus.

Emrick had been in his second stint with the Devils, having rejoined the team in 1993.

In addition to his departure from the Devils, Emrick will also have a “lighter regular season-schedule” on NBC and Versus.

In a similar move, Emrick’s colleague Dave Strader is expected to leave the Coyotes for a full-time position with NBC/Versus.
