Kenny Albert (born Kenny Aufrichtig; February 2, 1968, in New York, New York), is an American sportscaster and the son of sportscaster Marv Albert.


Early lifeEdit

On his sixth birthday, his father took him along to a New York Rangers game. One of the statisticians had to leave in the middle of the game so Kenny got to do the stats for the rest of the game (1974). At 14, he became the official statistician for the New York Rangers on the radio. At 16, he wrote content for the New York Rangers program. Aside from his father, his idol was Vancouver Canucks play-by-play broadcaster Jim Robson.

Hockey Broadcasting careerEdit

Kenny is the radio voice of the New York Rangers. When Fox had the network contract for the National Hockey League in the 1990s, Albert also worked on Fox NHL Saturday telecasts.

He has done work for NBC's Olympics coverage, as a play-by-play announcer for men's and women's ice hockey at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, and the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Previously, he handled radio play-by-play for the Washington Capitals.
