The Dallas Stars announced Sunday morning that play-by-play announcer Dave Strader passed away at the age of 62.

He has been a team broadcaster for the Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers, Phoenix Coyotes and Dallas Stars, as well as calling nationally televised games for ESPN, ABC, Fox and NBC. Strader went on to call the Capitals-Maple Leafs first-round playoff series for NBC last season.

Starder's career was brought to a special spotlight earlier this year when he was honored by the Hockey Hall of Fame when it was announced that he was the recipient of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for his outstanding contributions as a hockey broadcaster.

Strader had been calling games for the Stars since the 2015-16 season. Prior to his work with the Stars, he was a play-by-play announcer for the National Hockey League on NBC. He also worked the 2012 Summer Olympics in London as the basketball play-by-play announcer. The Dallas Stars took on the Tampa Bay Lightning in a game that ended up going to overtime.

Detroit fans still regarded him affectionately long after he moved on from the Red Wings. So, on a day that is sad for so many reasons because we've lost truly one of the best in the business and, more than that, one of the best people, the brief time I knew Dave will always make me smile. 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.

The entire Detroit #RedWings organization is saddened to learn of the passing of Dave Strader. "The Voice" was a true professional and a friend to many.

In addition to his wife, Strader is survived by son Christopher and wife Karen, their daughter Sydney, son Casey and wife Mary, their son Charles, and son Trevor.
