NBC Sports NHL announcer Mike "Doc" Emrick will be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame this fall, it was announced Monday.

Emrick, 65, has been in the hockey broadcast business for nearly 40 years. He recently concluded a 23-year run as the play-by-play voice of the New Jersey Devils on MSG Plus to devote his energies to the NBC and Versus' NHL package.

In 2008, Emrick was the winner of the Hockey Hall of Fame's Foster Hewitt Award.

Also being inducted are former NHL players Chris Chelios, Gary Suter and Keith Tkachuk and Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider.
