Chicago Blackhawks Team President John McDonough has released the following statement regarding the passing of Chicago Cubs Broadcaster and former player Ron Santo:
“The thoughts and prayers of the entire Chicago Blackhawks organization are with the Santo family. Ron was an inspiration to everyone as his life was defined by overcoming obstacles. It is a sad day for all of Chicago and everyone in the sports world. His incredible passion for the Cubs was unmatched. I was honored to have shared many years of friendship with Ron and will remember those days fondly. Although we collectively are grieving over his passing, we should also celebrate his incredible life.”
The Blackhawks will observe a moment of silence at the United Center in honor of Santo before hosting the Vancouver Canucks tonight at 7:30 P.M.
