The hockey rink reflects on the Adirondack Hockey Fall of Fame plaque for Dave Strader on Oct. 5 at Cool Insuring Arena.

Dave Strader, the legendary play-by-play broadcaster, continues to live on as the NHL held its Hockey Fights Cancer night.

On Monday, the Dallas Stars invited Strader's son, Trevor, to sing the national anthem at the American Airlines Center.

The aspiring singer/actor also performed during last year's Hockey Fights cancer night following his father's diagnosis. The team invited him back following his father's death.

Watch and listen to the performance below:

Special lavender jerseys and stick tape were used during warmups and auctioned off. The auction and proceeds from a 50/50 benefited HopeKids, Flashes of Hope and The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation.

Trevor was a guest on NHL Now talking about the night and what is coming next for the Straders.

Dave will be honored this weekend at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. Dave was named the 2017 winner of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for outstanding broadcasting contributions to hockey.

The Strader family will be on hand and accept the award posthumously.

In the interview, Trevor said he and his brothers, Christopher and Casey, will deliver a speech their father drafted.

Dave Strader died Oct. 1 after battling bile duct cancer. He was 62.
