Dave Strader, ex-Wings broadcaster, dies at 62

03 October 2017

The Dallas Stars announced this morning that television legend Dave Strader has passed away after battling an incurable form of cancer.

He was 62 years old. He called games for multiple teams in the league, including the Detroit Red Wings, the Florida Panthers, the Arizona Coyotes, and the St. Louis Blues, but the majority of his work took place with the first team that he worked for, the Adirondack Red Wings (AHL). Strader went on to call the Capitals-Maple Leafs first-round playoff series for NBC last season.

Maye Musk is Covergirl's new face at 69
In recent years, CoverGirl has made it a company-wide priority to promote diversity and expand our definition of "beauty". Everyone who says age is just a number is totally right - and one model has taken it upon herself to prove that point.

In April, the Hockey Hall of Fame presented Strader with the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for his contributions as a broadcaster. The broadcast of Strader's return to the booth was honored by two Lone Star Emmy nominations announced this week. Prior to his work with the Stars, he was a play-by-play announcer for the National Hockey League on NBC.

He would go on to miss 283 days before calling his first of five games of the 2016-17 season on February 18, 2017. The team is also working with the ECHL to get to wear stickers on the back of its helmets to honor him for the full season.

The Detroit Red Wings family lost a legend today. 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. He was a terrific announcer but a wonderful guy to chat with about the present and past and - whenever I would ask him about people in Glens Falls from the 1970s - he would always know about them.

"The entire Detroit Red Wings organization is saddened to learn of the passing of Dave Strader", the team tweeted. More importantly, he was a tremendous husband, father, grandfather and friend and we will miss him deeply.
