PAT FOLEY

The voice of Chicago winters has a new home in Toronto.

Chicago Blackhawks play-by-play man, Pat Foley, will enter the Hockey Hall of Fame as a media honoree in November after being recognized with the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for broadcasting.

Foley, who just completed his 31st season with Chicago, began calling Hawks games in 1981 before the team parted ways with him in 2006. After spending two seasons broadcasting for the AHL’s Chicago Wolves, the Blackhawks brought him back in 2008 where he’s remained since with partner, and former Hawk, Eddie Olczyk.

The Foster Hewitt Memorial Award is an annual honor voted on by the NHL Broadcasters’ Association. Foley becomes the 31st recipient of the prize.
