Hockey Hall of Fame member Dick Irvin has been part of CBC's hockey broadcasting team for 32 years. To viewers of Hockey Night in Canada, the Calgary native is best known for his coverage of Montreal Canadiens games. In fact, he has also traveled with the Habs for more than 20 years as their radio broadcaster, and has covered more than 2,000 NHL games on TV and radio.

Along with his award-winning work on the airwaves – among his achievements is the Foster Hewitt Award for excellence in hockey broadcasting – Irvin is also an accomplished author. Last year, he followed up his bestselling The Habs and Behind the Bench with In the Crease:Goaltenders Look at Life in the NHL.

Hockey Night in Canada has been a part of Irvin's life for almost as long as he can remember. Growing up in Alberta in the '30s and '40s, he used to listen to Foster Hewitt's broadcasts on the radio. He started watching Hockey Night in Canada right from the first broadcast in 1952. In fact, his father, Dick Irvin Sr., was coaching the Habs in the first game televised from Montreal.
