10 Most Entertaining Announcers in the NHL

1 of 11

    Hockey is a wonderful, fast-paced game that highlights the abilities of some of the greatest athletes on the planet.

    But, if you don't have a ticket to the game, you need a little help to know what's going on at the rink.

    Some announcers do a nice job of telling the viewing audience about the game as it unfolds, but others take it to another level. In this slideshow, we'll offer you videos of some of the more colorful, entertaining people in the hockey announcing business.

    Opinions on the quality of the work of these folks will undoubtedly be mixed, but they are some of the most well-known in the industry for a reason.

    And no, Mike Milbury isn't anywhere close to this list.

    He gets excited.

9. Pierre McGuire

    He clearly enjoys his job.

8. Craig Laughlin

    He's one of the guys who sounds like he's going through puberty when the game gets exciting.

7. Jack Edwards

5 of 11

    You either hate this guy or love him, but he's never been afraid to speak his mind.

6. Gary Thorne

    He's reason enough for ESPN to get a game every once in a while.

5. Don Cherry

7 of 11

    His suits are usually louder than his voice, and he loves to make people mad, but Don Cherry has never been afraid to say something.

4. Eddie Olczyk

    No, the slideshow doesn't Stop Right Here.

3. Doc Emrick

9 of 11

    A worthy Hall of Famer.

2. Pat Foley and Dale Tallon

    When you try to talk through a painful replay too much...yes, this is the voice of the general manager of the Florida Panthers.

    The G.O.A.T of entertaining hockey announcers. Email him a movie line and he'll probably use it on the air at some point.
