The NHL Alumni Association has announced the passing of 84-year-old NHL legend Bobby Hull.

Born, Robert Marvin Hull, in Pointe Anne, Ontario, he was considered one of the best hockey players of all time. He was nicknamed the "Golden Jet", for his ability to shoot the puck at high velocities, with his skating speed 

"Bobby was a 3x Art Ross Trophy winner, Lester Patrick Trophy winner, 2x Hart Memorial Trophy winner, Lady Byng Memorial Trophy winner, Stanley Cup Champion, Hockey Hall of Famer, and one of the NHL's 100 Greatest Players," a tweet from the NHL Alumni Association read. "We send our deepest condolences to Bobby’s family, friends, former teammates, and Blackhawks organization during this very difficult time."

In his 23-year career with both NHL and WHA, Hull played for the Chicago Black Hawks, Winnipeg Jets, and Hartford Whalers.
