It will be just a regular season NHL game between Detroit and Chicago on February 20th.  For Mike Tirico it will be his first ever call of an NHL game.

According to Detroit Free Press,  Tirico will call his first ever NHL game when the Red Wings host the Blackhawks on February 20th.

Since he came over to NBC from ESPN he has covered the Olympics, Notre Dame Football, NFL as well as golf and horse racing.

He has also worked events for NBC for the NHL like the Stanley Cup Finals, Winter Classic and All Star Game.  This assignment will be his first calling the actual game.

The original six match up will feature the Red Wings and Blackhawks, who have both spent most of the season near the bottom of the league.

You can watch Mike Tirico call the game along with NBC regulars Eddie Olczyk and Brian Boucher on Wednesday Night, February 20th on NBC Sports.
