Albert, who has called all four major sports during his professional career, has described the action for over 1,000 professional hockey games over the last two decades. Albert has also been an announcer for FOX Sports since 1994.

During the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, Albert and Joe Micheletti called 23 hockey games in 13 days for NBC, including the men’s quarterfinal matchup between Russia and the Czech Republic, and the women’s gold medal game featuring the USA and Canada. Albert returned to NBC for the 2006 Winter Games in Turin, Italy, calling 17 men’s and women’s contests. Albert also called five seasons of the NHL on FOX (1995-99).
