  • Dave Strader, NHL broadcaster from Glens Falls, dies

Longtime NHL broadcaster Dave Strader passed away at the age of 62 on Sunday, following a battle with cancer. Strader eventually got the call the National Hockey League in 1985 after spending six years with the Adirondack Wings, the AHL affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings, as the new TV voice in Detroit, where he was paired with Mickey Redmond and did so until 1996. Strader went on to call games for the Phoenix Coyotes, Florida Panthers, and Dallas Stars, as well as national telecasts for Versus/NBC, ESPN, and FOX. Known affectionately as "The Voice", he was honored in April by the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto with the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for outstanding contributions as a hockey broadcaster.

Tapper said the team will be wearing a pin-type logo on their uniforms for the early part of the season to honor Strader.

"A great announcer, a better man", Mike "Doc" Emrick wrote on Twitter after learning the news. "Our first time meeting was at the Glens Falls Civic Center - since re-named".

The Red Wings released a statement saying they are "saddened" to learn of Strader's passing. And, this is with the Winter Classics, the many Stanley Cup finals he did around the world, the all-star weekends, plus the other sports. He was kind, approachable, and the same guy who remembered riding busses and three and a half-hour bench-clearers in Portland. "We send comfort and condolences to his wife, Colleen, their children and grandchildren and all whose hockey experience was improved by the sound of Dave's voice". Though he will be replaced in person by his play-by-play partner Daryl Reaugh, it's clear that no one will ever be able to truly replace Dave Strader.
