Ex-Red Wing enforcer Probert dies



"DETROIT -- Retired hockey enforcer Bob
Probert, as adept with his fists as with a stick in a 16-season
career with the Detroit Red
Wings and Chicago
Blackhawks, died Monday after suffering chest pains while boating
with his family. He was 45."Bob lost the fight of his life this
afternoon," said Probert's father-in-law, Dan Parkinson, a police
officer who performed CPR before Probert was rushed to Ontario's Windsor
Regional Medical Center.Probert was on a boat in Lake St. Clair
with his wife, children and in-laws when he "developed severe chest
pains" Monday, family friend Rich Rogow said at a news conference at the
medical center on Monday night.



"This is a tragedy for
the family," Parkinson said. "We ask that you respect their privacy at
this time."Probert, who struggled to overcome drinking problems
during his time in the NHL, played for the Red Wings in 1985-1994 and
for the Blackhawks in 1995-2002."Bob was a part of our very first
NHL Draft class that also included Steve
Yzerman, Joe
Kocur, Petr
Klima and Stu
Grimson," Red Wings owners Mike and Marian Ilitch said in a
statement. "Bob was always there for his teammates and was one of the
toughest men to ever play in the NHL."He also was one of the
kindest, most colorful, and beloved players Detroit has ever known."Kocur
remembered his teammate as "one of the toughest players, best power
forwards and all-around great guys who ever wore the Winged Wheel.""My
favorite memory of Bob would be sitting down before a game, going over
the opposing lineup and picking and choosing who would go first and if
the goalie would be safe or not," Kocur said. "It was great to be able
to go out on the ice knowing that he had my back and I had his."He
was like the brother I never had. My prayers go out to his family."Blackhawks
president John McDonough said the organization's "thoughts and prayers
are with the entire Probert family.""Bob will always be a member
of the Blackhawks family and his memory will live on through our fans,"
McDonough said in a statement.The Windsor native had 384 points
(163 goals, 221 assists) in 935 career regular-season games with Detroit
and Chicago. His 3,300 career penalty minutes rank sixth in NHL
history."Bob was a guy that started as a strictly tough guy but
made himself a player," former Toronto maple Leafs enforcer Wendel
Clark told Canadian Press. "Off the ice, everything was a whole
different story. He was one of the good guys and he'd do anything for
anybody."Probert was charged several times with driving under the
influence while playing for Detroit. He also was caught trying to carry
cocaine from Canada into the U.S. in 1989 and served a six-month
federal prison sentence.He was placed on inactive status for the
1994-95 season after he was involved in a motorcycle accident and tests
showed alcohol and cocaine in his system.The Blackhawks honored
Probert with a Bob Probert Heritage Night on Feb. 22, 2009, at the
United Center, and he dropped the ceremonial puck before Game 3 of the
2009 Western Conference Final between Detroit and Chicago.No
funeral arrangements were immediately made. Probert is survived by his
wife and four children.Information from The Associated Press
contributed to this story.



Bob Probert finished his
career with 163 goals, 384 points and 3,300 penalty minutes -- fourth in
NHL history -- in 935 games."

Cara, esse ae espancava ... só taca no youtube e tem um monte.( depois coloquem probert vs keith primeau - os caras brigando no treino - sugestão lá do orkut nhl brasil)

lembro dele de joguinho, kkk era ele entrar no gelo já dava briga.

No começo do ano ele participou do evento de anuncio do time do Hawks ( dessa temporada que passou) ,ele e outros que foram importantes na historia do time. Até depois de jogar ele ainda manteve o jeito parrudão, só de encarar ele já devia dar medo kkk

teve um playoff que o cara conseguiu fazer 21 pontos pelo Red Wings, foi uma coisa atípica , mas enforcer fazer 21 pontos em playoff é froid.
