ESPN's Barry Melrose retires after Parkinson's disease diagnosis


Recommended Posts





Man did a lot for Hockey and college Hockey.  I have fond memories of watching him on ESPN as a young kid.  It's not going to be the same in the playoffs without him calling games.  Sad day for hockey fans.

I think many of us saw this coming several years ago having seen Barry Melrose in the booth with his hand shaking.  I loved Barry as a commentator and enjoyed his enthusiasm for college hockey.  Parkinson’s Disease is awful and I for one will be praying for him.  

I know a lot of people don't like him but I truly loved listening to him and Bucci come spring
