It’s been a long road for NHL fans since the league paused the 2019-20 season due to the coronavirus outbreak.
But have no fear, Doc Emrick has some words of encouragement.
In a video posted Sunday by NBC, the NHL play-by-play analyst offered some thoughts about the crisis that’s consumed the United States. Like most NHL fans, Emrick is eager to see the game return in any fashion. But he has a dream for when the league eventually resumes, whenever that may be.

When we all get to be together again, we will be so grateful for those who helped us to get there. What a joyful day that will be.
That is Doc's dream. ?? pic.twitter.com/UqnwU0r3dz
