Buffalo Sabres broadcaster Rick Jeanneret, whose boisterous goal calls have become well known to fans around the NHL, has been diagnosed with throat cancer.

Jeanneret will begin treatment in the coming weeks and, according to a report from The Buffalo News, doctors have told the legendary broadcaster his cancer is at Stage 3 and he has an 85 per cent chance of recovery.

“We wish RJ a full and speedy recovery and know his tenacity will serve him well in his fight,” the Sabres said in a team release on their website.

Jeanneret has been calling Sabres games since 1971 and, according to reports, plans on returning to the broadcasting booth next season.
