Rangers Broadcaster Sam Rosen Inducted Into NHL Hall of Fame


Sam Rosen

They were on their feet in Toronto on Monday as Sam Rosen was inducted into the NHL Hall of Fame. He was also presented with the 2016 Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for Excellence in Hockey Broadcasting. It is a long overdue honor for the man who has been behind the microphone for the New York Rangers television broadcast since 1984.

It has been a special run for the Rangers in their television booth. Rosen has been unwavering for years and has managed to maintain long-term chemistry with a short list of color broadcasters. He shared the booth with Phil Esposito for two seasons before spending the next 20 years with John Davidson. Following Davidson leaving for front office work, Rosen has then spent the next 11 years and counting with Joe Micheletti and hasn’t missed a beat. It is truly an honor to get to listen to Rosen night in and night out on the Rangers broadcast.

You can also catch Rosen doing play-by-play for the NFL on Fox on Sunday’s where he has also excelled and been a joy to listen to.

Rosen has seen it all with the Rangers from broadcasting goals of the greats as Mark Messier, Wayne Gretzky and Jaromir Jagr to calling a game seven Stanley Cup victory for the Blueshirts and everything in between. His voice is synonymous with Rangers hockey and will hopefully be heard announcing power play goals for years to come!
