Grosse Pointe Hockey Players Get Cool Treat

Famed NHL announcer Mike "Doc" Emrick called the play-by-play action of a game between the St. Clair Shores Saints and Troy Sting for a taped segment for NBC's Rock Center.

The hockey players on the St. Clair Shores Saintes and Troy Sting 12U Girls teams received a cool treat on Wednesday night.

The two teams played in Troy as famed NHL play-by-play announcer Mike “Doc” Emrick called the game for a taped segment for NBC’s Rock Center.

Emrick calls hockey games for NBC Sports, though he has little action this year with the NHL lockout.

Kim Clexton, a Grosse Pointe Park resident and parent of one of the players on the St. Clair Shores Saintes, said cameras taped action all over the rink and in the stands. Parents provided short bios and fun facts for their daughters to aid in the play-by-play.

Parents have been told that a taped segment on the game is scheduled to appear on Rock Center on Jan. 3.

Players on the St. Clair Shores Saintes come from Grosse Pointe, St. Clair Shores and surrounding areas.

Our team is so fortunate to have such dedicated Management in Kelly and Ray Barnowske and truly top notch coaching from Coach Anna and her staff. This once in a lifetime opportunity would never have happened without their hard work!

I manage the Troy team and we were very excited to host the Saintes and their staff. It was an exciting night for the girls and for girls hockey. Thanks to everyone involved!

Beth - thank you so much for your hospitality and the myriad of arrangements and details I'm sure you were responsible for sorting through! Of course on our end, we only know what it took to organize our crowd, but we appreciate all you went through as well. What a great night!
