For Dave Strader, luck was unfortunately not on his side on June 13, 2016 when he was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a rare form of bile duct cancer.
He was 62 years old.
Strader ended up calling games for NBC full-time beginning in 2011 (his overall tenure with NBC included the 2006 and 2014 Winter Olympics) until moving over to the Stars broadcast team.

We hope it's not too serious". "Our supporters are irreproachable and professional football demands the best organisation". Local official Philippe De Mester said the four seriously injured people were not in a life-threatening condition.
Strader was named in April by the Hockey Hall of Fame as recipient of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for his contributions as a hockey broadcaster.
Despite undergoing intense cancer treatments, Strader was able to call five home games for Dallas Stars and two Stanley Cup playoff games for NBC last season. Prior to joining the Stars, he called games for NBCSN and the NBC Sports Group. The Dallas Stars took on the Tampa Bay Lightning in a game that ended up going to overtime.
Strader received support from the Stars, who wore a microphone sticker with "DS" on it affixed to their helmets; fellow broadcasters around the league pinned the same logo to their lapels. The award will be displayed in the Hockey Hall of Fame following a media awards luncheon on November 13 in Toronto.
