VIDEO: Jim Hughson calls Boston Bruins thrilling Game 7 Stanley Cup victory

The legendary play by play man is calling it a career after 42 years.


Long-time NHL play-by-play man Jim Hughson has officially decided to call it a career after 42 years in the broadcast booth that have seen him call countless games including a dozen Stanley Cup finals, two World Series and two Olympic Games.

"It's been a fantastic run and I'd like to thank Sportsnet, Hockey Night in Canada and all my friends and colleagues over the years for the tremendous support and countless memories," Hughson said in a release. "This is a decision I made in consultation with my family and I'm very much at peace with it.

"My only goal in this industry was to work at the highest level and on the last day of the season. I've had that opportunity a number of times and will always be grateful for it."

We're throwing it back to Hughson's call on June 15, 2011 when the Boston Bruins earned their first Stanley Cup win in nearly four decades with a thrilling 4-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks in British Columbia:
