Eddie Olczyk Fighting Colon Cancer

Eddie Olczyk, the Blackhawks’ local television color analyst and NBC’s primary color guy for national broadcasts, recently had a procedure to deal remove a cancerous tumor from his colon.

Having worked with Eddie in the past, he’s always been a class act and loves Chicago, the Blackhawks and the fans in this city. Our prayers are with Eddie for a fast and safe recovery.

On Tuesday afternoon the Blackhawks released statements from Olczyk, team physician Michael Terry and team President and CEO John McDonough.

  1. Best wishes to Eddie. This can be beat. My brother had it some 20 years or so ago (as did a friend of ours, though I don’t remember how long ago he had it), and they both beat it. Again, best wishes to Eddie.

  2. My prayers are with you…all your fans are rooting for you, Eddie… You got this! Have faith and do everything you need to do to take good care of yourself so you can beat this awful disease! We need to hear you and Pat Foley announcing Hawks games, all the laughter, and you guys scoping out fans eating soft serve ice cream! Cant wait to have you back!! Kick that cancer right in the “labanza”!!

  3. Eddie I know you’ll beat cancer they have come so far with treatments. I’m fighting cancer myself it’s not an easy battle but it’s one I know Eddie will win. Prayers and love to you and your family!!

  4. Even when your in the clear. Keep doing the test/blood tests because it can come up elsewhere if not continue tests, even after doctors say your in clear/good. This happened to my uncle this past fall/winter.

    Nurses and soft serve, eh.

  5. Our prayers are with EDDIE O!!! Great Chicago native, great player and person. Having spoken with him in the past and introduced him to my son almost 10 years ago, he is truly an example to many. His mom’s meatballs are the best he says! We wish his family all the best during this difficult time.
