Chicago Blackhawks President John McDonough released the following statement on behalf of the organization regarding the passing of former Blackhawks forward Bob Probert.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Probert family during this difficult time," said McDonough. "Bob will always be a member of the Blackhawks family and his memory will live on through our fans."

Probert, 45, spent seven of his 16 National Hockey League seasons as a member of the Blackhawks and registered 125 points (49G, 76A) and 1,210 penalty minutes in 461 regular-season tilts from 1995 to 2002. He posted five points (2G, 3A) and 64 penalty minutes in 18 postseason contests with Chicago.

Overall, Probert recorded 384 points (163G, 221A) in 935 career regular-season games with the Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings (1985-94). His 3,300 career penalty minutes rank fifth all-time in NHL history. He also tallied 48 points (16G, 32A) along with 274 penalty minutes in 81 career Stanley Cup Playoff tilts.

The Blackhawks honored the Windsor, Ontario, native with Bob Probert Heritage Night on February 22, 2009 at the United Center, and he dropped the ceremonial puck prior to Game 3 of the 2009 Western Conference Finals between Detroit and Chicago.
