“You sir are going to have a plaque with your name on it in the Hockey Hall Of Fame in Toronto,” Seravalli told Morganti on the air on Tuesday.
“I can’t believe this,” Morganti said. “Thank you very much. I want to thank everybody there…I owe anything I have ever done in any aspect of work is through hockey. The people are just terrific. I haven’t worked a day of my life because I just love that game so much and I love the game because of the people in it and the people I’ve worked with in the media. And my wife Carol is here with me. We’ve gone through this with hockey.”
