Olczyk Back In Booth Wednesday

Good news.  Eddie Olczyk, battling colon cancer, returns to the NBCSN broadcast booth tomorrow to call the game between the Blues and his decidedly favorite Hawks. 

Olczyk said Aug. 8 that he was diagnosed with colon cancer. He is six weeks into a 24-week chemotherapy regimen.
"Three treatments in. Nine to go," he told USA Today on Monday. "We are a quarter of the way into the race and we are grinding it out."
Olczyk said he also will be part of the WGN broadcast for the Blackhawks game against the Edmonton Oilers at United Center on Thursday (8:30 p.m. ET; NHL.TV) and will work other games as his health allows.

More and nice to hear.  Not all of us may appreciate his approach, or his biases, but it's good to see him, or anyone, battling back against a wicked opponent.

I am grateful he’s back. I know all too well about the wicked opponent he faces. Good health is my hope for Ed Olczyk.
