You probably already know that hockey is the most dramatic, lively sport in the world.
Hockey fans are some of the most dedicated, passionate fans of any fans in the world.
When this topic floated across my email, I jumped at the chance. There are so many moments and great or wacky announcements that it is virtually impossible to narrow it down to only 25.
As I looked at various pieces, the thought occurred to me that picking 25 goals or saves only would do a great disservice to you the reader/viewer.
The NHL (and hockey in general) are bigger than spectacular goals, or most snapshots in time that capture one small piece of the pie.
Instead of just compiling recent highlights, the right thing to do was to encapsulate a combination of the moments and people that make of hockey great. This spans a wide group of teams and even reaches across many languages across the globe.
Chances are, you may be angry that a certain moment, player or announcer is not covered in this highlight package. Feel free to let the world know about what else should be here in the comments section.
It is virtually impossible to get everything into a list like this, let alone rank it in some type of meaningful order, so no disrespect is meant for any "snubs".
Try your best to not let the positioning of the highlight give you an aneurysm. This is meant to be a broad-view slideshow.
Now we can take a look at the Top 25 announcer calls in hockey, and some commentary on why they are important in the overall picture of the great sport.
