Rod Phillips To Call His Last Edmonton Oilers Game Tonight
March 29, 2011 at 4:46 AM (PT)
Longtime EDMONTON OILERS radio broadcaster ROD PHILLIPS will call his last game TONIGHT (3/29) as the OILERS face the LOS ANGELES KINGS at REXALL PLACE. Players will wear jerseys with PHILLIPS' name and the number 37, for 37 seasons at the mic, during pre-game warmups, and the team will hold a pre-game ceremony to honor their longtime play-by-play man.
PHILLIPS, the OILERS' voice since the second season, when the team was in the WORLD HOCKEY ASSOCIATION, called 10 "classic" games this season as part of a farewell tour after announcing his retirement last year.
The OILERS are heard on CORUS Talk CHED-A/EDMONTON.
