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

  • NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement that Hull was a “true superstar with a gregarious personality.”
  • “When Bobby Hull wound up to take a slapshot, fans throughout the NHL rose to their feet in anticipation and opposing goaltenders braced themselves,” Bettman said.
  • “During his prime, there was no more prolific goal-scorer in all of hockey. … We send our deepest condolences to his son, fellow Hockey Hall of Famer Brett; the entire Hull family; and the countless fans around the hockey world who were fortunate enough to see him play or have since marveled at his exploits.”
