FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Dallas Stars announcer Dave Strader plans to work as many games as possible this season while undergoing treatment for a rare and aggressive form of cancer in his bile duct.

Strader released a statement through the team Wednesday saying there is no cure for cholangiocarcinoma. But he said the cancer is treatable and that is “fighting every day” and doing everything the doctors tell him to do. He thanked the Stars, fans and the entire NHL for their support for him and his family.

The Stars first revealed in June that Strader had been diagnosed with cancer, but gave no other details then.

A 36-year veteran in broadcasting, Strader joined the TV and radio simulcast with the Stars last season. He has also worked for the NBC Sports Network and served stints with Florida, Arizona and Detroit in the NHL.
