ESPN[edit | edit source]

At ESPN, he usually works on SportsCenter, and he covered NHL regular season and playoff games before the network lost the rights to televise the league's games. He also previously covered the network's college football coverage for four seasons. Levy has been with ESPN since 1993.

National Hockey League broadcasting[edit | edit source]

Levy is a prolific and well known NHL broadcaster. He has earned the nickname "Mr. Overtime," for having called the three longest televised games in NHL history, all of which have been playoff games — a 1996 game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals that went four overtimes (third longest); a 2000 contest that also featured the Penguins, this time playing the Philadelphia Flyers, which went five overtimes (the longest); and a 2003 matchup between the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim and the Dallas Stars, which also went five overtimes, and lasted six hours (second longest). The only two games to go longer took place before the era of television alongside Darren Pang.
