But his lines — “Oh, baby,” “This … Is … Playoff … Hockey” and the occasional “Everything is happening” — are part of the fabric of the game for so many.

“I love the kind of work I’ve been doing, seeing the guys. (Golden Knights coach Gerard) Gallant is a good friend. Was looking forward to at least saying hello. Just missing the playoffs. I miss it,” said Cole.

Cole said he isn’t sure about that.

“Things are up in the air and I don’t know what their plans are,” said Cole. “They said to me: Come and do a game. I don’t know. I don’t think I’m interested. I don’t know.

“Sure, I would love to be working again. I feel I can still work. I don’t think my voice has changed. It’s as strong as it’s ever been, thank goodness. We’ll see what they do. Hopefully they’ll be calling me, but they’re pretty busy now with the Stanley Cup.”
