Hockey Hall of Famer Bobby Hull has died at the age of 84, the NHL Alumni Association announced.
“We send our deepest sympathies to the Hull family,” the team said in a statement. “The Hull Family has requested privacy during this difficult time. They appreciate the sympathies that have been sent their way.”
Hull, known during his playing career as the Golden Jet because of his blond hair and speed on the ice, became beloved in Chicago for teaming with Stan Mikita to help the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup in 1961 to end a 23-year title drought.
Bobby Hull played 15 seasons for the Blackhawks and is the franchise’s all-time leader in goals scored with 604.
