Mike Emrick on the call for 12-year-old girls hockey

It’s a good thing the NHL season is starting. Otherwise, Mike Emrick might be reduced to doing play-by-play for Mahjong matches.

Anyway, this piece aired on NBC’s Rock Center Thursday. Give “Doc” credit: He doesn’t short-change the young girls.

Here are the details:

NBC News’ Brian Williams is a fan of NBC Sports hockey play-by-play voice Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick.

Because Doc hasn’t been heard as often these past few months, Brian asked if Doc would call a game to air on his show Rock Center with Brian Williams. Doc agreed and called a Girls 12U league game near his home in Troy, Michigan.

The St. Clair Shores Saints (away, red) took on the Troy Lady Sting (home, white and yellow) on Wednesday, December 12, 2012.  Doc provided the call from the Troy Sports Center in Troy, Michigan. Both teams play in the Girls 12U league. The Lady Sting won the game, 5-2.
