Dave Fay, a respected journalist who covered the Washington Capitals for The Washington Times, passed away this morning. Fay was 67 and had been battling cancer for the past 12 years.
Dave will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame this coming November.
I only covered games with Dave the past two seasons, but I always enjoyed dealing with him. Good reporter, better guy. This is a loss for not only hockey fans in Washington, but all over. This comes from his wife Pat: "In true Fay style he battled till the end. This time even that look could not stop this disease. He fought a good fight, but now he is at rest."
