Former NHL forward Olczyk diagnosed with colon cancer

CHICAGO (AP) Former NHL forward and coach Eddie Olczyk has been diagnosed with colon cancer.

Olczyk, who turns 51 on Aug. 16, had surgery last week, and Chicago Blackhawks team physician Dr. Michael Terry said Tuesday he "will be undergoing further treatment in the coming weeks, including chemotherapy." Olczyk is a color analyst for TV broadcasts for the Blackhawks and NBC Sports.

"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 put out by the team. "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."
