NHL's Bob Probert Dead at 45

Published July 05, 2010

Former NHL enforcer Bob Probert died Monday.

Probert, 45, one of the most feared pugilists in the history of the sport, was rushed to Windsor Regional Hospital after collapsing onboard a boat on Lake St. Clair,
a lake that lies between Ontario, Canada and the U.S. state of Michigan.

Windsor radio station AM 800 CKLW reported that Probert was transported to Windsor Regional Hospital where efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Probert, a tough guy for the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks in the 80's and 90's, held the Red Wings franchise record for career penalty minutes with 2,090 and is fifth on the list of NHL all-time penalty minutes with 3,300.

He was drafted 46th overall by the Red Wings in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft.

The ice hockey star had well documented alcohol and substance abuse problems over the history of his long NHL career.

While the exact cause of death has not been revealed, Probert's family has called a press conference for 6pm local time at the Windsor Regional Hospital to issue a statement, The Windsor Star reported.

Heard about it on the radio, RIP. A legend when it comes to tough-guys and definitely too young to pass away.
