Kenny Albert will be the voice of the NHL on TNT, The Post has learned.

With the move, Albert will man the mic as the voice of the Stanley Cup for four of the next eight finals. With Doc Emrick retired, Albert is expected to call the finals in NBC’s last season with hockey. He will then shift to TNT.

Last week, the NHL and Turner announced a new seven-year agreement that will pay $225 million per year for the rights to three Stanley Cups, half the playoffs and some regular season games, including the Winter Classic.

ESPN/ABC will take over the other half of the package and, after this season, will have the Stanley Cup finals in four of the next seven years. ESPN has yet to name lead broadcast teams — though, Steve Levy and Sean McDonough have emerged as top candidates for the lead play-by-play job.

Albert, 53, is the radio voice of the Rangers. He has been with Fox for more than a quarter century.
