Bobby Hull is one of the greatest players in Chicago Blackhawks Franchising. He was one of the team’s all-time great scores and that’s why he retired with his name in the Hall of Fame. Even to this day, he is beloved by Chicago fans.
Hull was hired as a team ambassador in 2008. It was one of many efforts for the newly formed Chicago Blackhawks team that existed back then. On Monday, the Hawks announced that he will no longer be in that role. He finished his race with the team at the age of 83.
During his legendary hockey career, he scored 610 NHL goals and had 560 assists for 1170 points. He’s also a Stanley Cup champion. All of that came in 1063 games against the Chicago Blackhawks, Winnipeg Jets and Hartford Whaler. Of course, 15 of his 16 NHL seasons came to Chicago.
Beyond the ice, Hull is a different story. To this day, people still get in trouble with him because of some of the things he did in his younger days. It’s not exactly what you want to hear about an old hockey legend like this but it can’t be ignored.
The Chicago Blackhawks switched from Bobby Hull as their team ambassador.
With that in mind, it’s probably a bit overdue for this to happen. This organization clearly has some deep-rooted problems going on there while they are a very good team. Getting rid of Hull would be a way for them to show that they are moving away from all that negativity.
It also means that they will do what is necessary to move forward and will not tolerate hurtful behavior. Hull is a hockey legend and without a doubt. There’s also no doubt that his time with the team is up and both are able to move on.
There are several interesting options for becoming a new team ambassador. Patrick Sharp, Marian Hossa, Andrew Shaw and Niklas Hjalmarsson are good candidates. They are all champions on the same team and can offer a lot.
This city deserves to be represented by its National Hockey League team. This organization has incredible fans who deserve it more. It’s been fun to see them take leaps and bounds and move on from so many things.
