NHL Hall Of Famer Bobby Hull, The Golden Jet, Dead At 84

Hockey legend Bobby Hull, known as the Golden Jet because of his blonde hair and fast skating, has died, according to a statement from the NHL Alumni Association issued on Monday morning. He was 84 years old.

Hull is the all-time leading scorer for the Chicago Blackhawks, amassing more than 600 goals in his 15-year career, ESPN reported. He was a 12-time All-Star and two-time Hart Trophy winner.

“Bobby Hull will always be remembered as one of the greatest Blackhawks players of all time,” Chicago Blackhawks Chairman Rocky Wirtz said in a statement. “He was a beloved member of the Blackhawks family. When I assumed leadership of the organization upon my father’s passing in 2007, one of my first priorities was to meet with Bobby to convince him to come back as an ambassador of the team. His connection to our fans was special and irreplaceable. On behalf of the entire Wirtz family, I offer our deepest condolences on the loss of Bobby Hull, the Golden Jet. He will be missed.”

The NHL Alumni Association is deeply saddened to learn that Bobby Hull has passed away at the age of 84.
