Blackhawks statement on Gordie Howe

by Chicago Blackhawks / Chicago Blackhawks

Chicago Blackhawks Chairman Rocky Wirtz today released the following statement on the passing of Gordie Howe:

“The Chicago Blackhawks offer their heartfelt condolences to Gordie’s family and the entire Detroit Red Wings organization. There is no greater rivalry in hockey than the one between the Red Wings and the Blackhawks, and Gordie was a large part of that. The relationship between our family and Gordie is three generations long, and we are grateful for what he gave to our organization, the National Hockey League and the sport of hockey. There’s a reason why he is called “Mr. Hockey,” because of what he did for the game, and we stand with the entire sports world in mourning his loss.”
