Marvin Daniels, the father of Red Wings’ TV play-by-play man Ken Daniels, died Friday at 96. Ken Daniels worked Friday’s game before heading to Toronto to handle family arrangements. Dave Strader will do play-by-play for Fox Sports Net Detroit on Sunday at Colorado, while Matt Shepard will call Tuesday’s game at St. Louis.

condolences to the Daniels family and friends

Very Sad news! Thoughts are with you and your family Ken. Ken is by far the best NHL play by play man in the league!

Sucks to get Dave back for one game this way. Would have been nice if Mickey could have been there.

What a wonderful long life, 96 years old. Still, sorry to hear of Ken's loss, and thoughts and prayers to the family. Dave will do great in Ken's absence. RIP, Mr. Daniels.

very sad to hear, but at 96, it sounds like his father lived quite a long and productive life.

As for the game, is anyone excited to hear Dave Strader back with Mickey? I always thought those two were fantastic together.
"I can't believe I shook this guys frickin' hand. We lost and I'm pissed off. But to see Kris Draper's face makes me sick. I didn't see his face until after the game, but his face is turned sideways. If the league doesn't do something about that ... I mean that's ridiculous. He could have broken his fricken neck."

It'll probably be Dave and Murph I don't think Mickey was there last night.

Sorry for Ken's loss but at least his dad lived a long hopefully happy life.

Thanks Offsides

Condolences Kenny.

Strades is the best of the best. He'd be great with a an empty coffee cup. Too bad VS wastes him with their crew.

He and Panger were great for a spell.
