Quote:
Former hockey player and current TV color commentator Eddie Olczyk announced Tuesday that he is being treated for colon cancer.

"I have been working with outstanding health care professionals and expect to be back in the broadcast booth after I complete my treatment," Olczyk said in a statement. "Having the support and encouragement from my family, the Chicago Blackhawks organization, NBC Sports and all my friends and fans means the world to me and will give me continued strength to beat this. My family and I appreciate privacy during this time as we focus our attention on my treatments."
Quote:
Olczyk, who will turn 51 on Aug. 16, played 16 seasons in the NHL for the Blackhawks, Jets, Maple Leafs, Rangers, Penguins and Kings. His best season came as a 22-year-old with the Leafs in 1988-89, when he scored 38 goals and added 52 assists.

One of the better analysts in the game and certainly a great player in his time. Modest, likable and a versatile TV personality.

Give em hell Eddie and beat the bastard known as cancer.

He was a class act, when he played for the Jets. All the power to him.

Saw him at the Belmont last year, very friendly with fans and always smiling.

He'll beat the hell out of this on attitude alone
