Longtime Buffalo Sabres announcer Rick Jeanneret said Friday night that he's free of the throat cancer he was diagnosed with during the summer.

On the television broadcast before the "Hockey Fights Cancer" game against the Edmonton Oilers, Jeanneret said he was told this week that the cancer was gone. The 72-year-old native of Ontario is missing the start of the season as he gets radiation treatment.
