    Pierre McGuire Recovering from Prostate Cancer Surgery

    NBC Sports hockey analyst and TSN Hockey contributor Pierre McGuire underwent surgery for prostate cancer last week and expects to be back to cover the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea starting in February.

    McGuire told radio host Mitch Melnyk on TSN 690 Montreal on Wednesday that the surgery was successful and he feels "fantastic.”

    The diagnosis emerged from a routine checkup he had last September.

    "I had no signs at all that I was ill," McGuire explained. "My work habits hadn’t changed, my workout habits hadn’t changed. My eating habits hadn’t changed. I hadn’t lost weight and hadn’t gained weight.

    “I was just living a normal life...I'm just so grateful for having Dr. (Michael) Cohen pick that up."

    After being sent for further tests, he was diagnosed with stage 1 prostate cancer in mid-November. Doctors removed his prostate on Jan. 4.

    If his quotes are true, then he’s a fucking walking billboard for regular colon exams. Holy shit.

    I’m starting a ska band - the colonaskapees

    Seriously though, holy shit. You just get to be that (read: some) age and shit gets to you.

    Health matters most. Get well... so we can moan and groaned about all those useless details you spew in every broadcast.

    Seriously though, get healthy.
