Justin Terranova - April 2017
Dave Strader has loved hockey since his first experience in Madison Square Garden at 13. So, when he became a game announcer, it really felt like his dreams came true. Now at 61, Strader has been diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer, and the game and announcing it, has become his life line.
Nicknamed "The Voice", Strader has continued his work throughout his treatments, never losing his stride. Strader states, "I knew I missed it and I knew I wanted to get back into it, but until I got in the booth for that first game in Dallas, I didn't realize how much I missed it and how normal it felt to be back...for the four or five hours that I am there, I completely forget I'm sick."
