All The Best To Dave Strader

via the Dallas Stars,

Dallas Stars Play-By-Play Announcer Dave Strader has been diagnosed with cancer.  Out of respect for Dave and his family, the specifics of his illness and treatment will not be disclosed.

Dallas Stars President and CEO, Jim Lites

"The Dallas Stars are deeply saddened to learn of Dave Strader's cancer diagnosis. As he goes through his treatment, all of our thoughts and prayers are directed to Dave, his wife Colleen, their son Christopher and his wife Karen and daughter Sydney, their son Casey and his wife Dr. Mary, and their son Trevor. We wish Dave a full recovery and will support him through his battle.

"Dave's work in both local markets and on the national stage have made his voice synonymous with hockey to fans all over the globe in his 36 years in the booth. We know that he's touched a lot of people throughout his career thus far and those wanting to send well-wishes are encouraged to send Dave a note at WellWishesForStrader@dallasstars.com."

Dallas Stars Play-By-Play Announcer, Dave Strader

"I realize I have a challenge and fight ahead of me. With my wife Colleen and our family, along with the full support of the Dallas Stars organization, we are ready to meet this challenge. We don't have to look very far for inspiration as Bekki Nill has shown us all how to meet this dreaded disease head-on. Personally, her example will serve as a great guide. I want to thank everyone for their support as I proceed with treatment."

The Dallas Stars respect Dave's request for privacy regarding his condition at this time, and will provide further updates on his status when they are available.

from Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News,

Dave and Razor? Strader and Razor?

The new play-by-play voice of the Dallas Stars is Dave Strader, a veteran NHL broadcaster who has worked nationally for ESPN, Fox, Versus and NBC Sports Network.

The official announcement is expected to come later this morning but there will be no local news conference to present the new voice. Strader is in Tampa preparing to call Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals for various radio networks including satellite’s SiriusXM.

Strader spent the 2014-2015 season as the No. 2 play-by-play voice behind Mike Emrick at NBCSN. NBC says it will continue to use Strader when he has no Stars conflicts.

Strader replaces Ralph Strangis, who resigned in April after 22 seasons of Stars broadcasts, the last 19 in the play-by-play seat alongside analyst Daryl “Razor” Reaugh.

Covering The Playoffs

from Dave Strader at PhoenixCoyotes.com,

After three flights to three different cities and several taxi cabs, I’m now on the train from New York City to Philadelphia for Game 4 between the Penguins and Flyers.

Last night at Madison Square Garden was a great playoff atmosphere. As I mentioned on our telecast, there are so many great venues and fans around the NHL, but there is something unique about MSG
