BILL WIRTZ DEAD AT 77

0

This was stunning news.

In an announcement on the team Web site, the Blackhawks said Wirtz died at Evanston Hospital after battling cancer.

I didn’t even know he had cancer. There’s certainly a lot to be said about the direction of this proud franchise, one of the original six NHL teams. But for now, may he rest in peace and the Wirtz family be comforted in their grief.
