The Hockey Hall of Fame announced the 2013 recipients of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award on Monday, awarding the honour to former Leafs broadcaster and current Buffalo Sabres broadcaster Harry Neale.

Neale, the popular veteran broadcaster and former Detroit Red Wings and Vancouver Canucks coach, was chosen by the National Hockey League Broadcasters' Association as this year's winner of the Hewitt award in recognition of his contributions to hockey broadcasting. He also wins the award the year after his long-time Sabres broadcast partner, Rick Jeanneret, was honoured. Neale was the colour analyst for Leafs games on regional TV for 20 seasons.

"Harry has entertained millions of hockey fans in the United States and Canada for close to 30 years," Chuck Kaiton, President of the NHL Broadcasters' Association, said. "His unique brand of humor and insight has been memorable. He is extremely worthy of this honor and the NHL Broadcasters' Association applauds him for his great work in all aspects of hockey."

The award presentation will take place November 11 in Toronto at a luncheon presentation.
