Bobby Hull: Outstanding Scorer, Bo Horvat to Islanders

Bobby Hull is one of the greatest hockey players of all time and arguably the greatest player ever wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey. He accomplished so much in hockey. Hull was a player that other players feared when he was on the ice because of his scoring ability. Sadly, Bobby Hull passed away on Monday at the age of 84. 

Hull played in the NHL for 23 seasons for Chicago Blackhawks, Winnipeg Jets, and Hartford Whalers. He was elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983. Hull won the Stanley Cup in 1961 and is a two-time Hart Memorial Trophy winner (1965, 1966), NHL All-Star game MVP (1970, 1971), the only player to win consecutive All-Star game MVP awards, WHA First All-Star Team (1973, 1974, and 1975), WHA Second All-Star Team (1976 and 1978), and WHA Most Valuable Player (1973 and 1975). 

Canucks are cleaning house. First, it was Bruce Boudreau, and now it is Bo Horvat. Bo Horvat is heading to Long Island. The Vancouver Canucks traded their captain to the New York Islanders. It’s a massive upgrade for the Islanders as their offense got better. Horvat led all Canucks forwards in 5-on-5 ice time and short-handed minutes, and he was second in power-play minutes.

The 27-year-old is in the final season of a six-year contract extension. Horvat has 31 goals, tied for eighth in the league, while his 54 points are tied for 21st.
