During the second intermission of Hockey Fights Cancer Night, Caps TV announcers Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin said who they fought for.
“My mom and my dad and Courtney Druce,” Laughlin said. “And I’m fighting for everybody out there. It’s something that we’ve got to be aware of. It’s great awareness tonight and we should fight for everyone who gets this disease.”
Joe B took a moment to share some warm wishes for Dallas Stars play-by-play man Dave Strader. In June, Strader — one of the most talented broadcasters in the league — was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer in his bile duct. He was forced to take a leave of absence from the team.
