Mike “Doc” Emrick, NBC’s NHL play-by-play broadcaster, isn’t your typical sports personality. He’s never learned to skate, let alone play hockey, and is the rare broadcaster with a Ph.D in communications – hence the nickname “Doc” – which may explain why he calls one of the fastest-paced sports with such grace. Despite a demeanor that appears to be the polar opposite of the rough-and-tumble game, Emrick has flourished during his nearly 40 years in hockey. REAL SPORTS correspondent Andrea Kremer joins the 69-year-old Emrick on opening night of the 2015-16 NHL season, visits his home in Michigan and gets the premier voice of the league to weigh in on some of hockey’s most pressing issues.
