The Blackhawks Have Made an Announcement and It's Causing a Ton of Controversy

The Blackhawks have revealed the events and special things they made for Bobby Hull's tribute, but it seems like one thing will be missing.

Hawks CEO Danny Wirtz said that they will be doing a moment of silence and have a video tribute before the puck drops tomorrow night against the Anaheim Ducks. But that one thing missing is his number or anything being put on the ice like they did for Stan Mikita and Tony Esposito.


Bobby was a very controversial character after retiring, saying some things he probably shouldn't have said, and it's now causing a fuse to blow on social media with their recent announcement.



Hull had 610 goals and 560 assists, adding up to 1,170 points in his career. He specifically had 142 points in the 1973-75 season with the Winnipeg Jets. He had a great career.
