What are your memories of Bob Probert?
Tue, July 6, 2010

LANCE HORNBY, QMI Agency

The hockey world once feared the fists of Bob Probert, then grew to pity his train-wreck lifestyle before celebrating his recovery as family man and ambassador of the game.

On Monday, it was mourning his death at age 45 after suffering a heart attack aboard a pleasure boat on Lake St. Clair.

Probert made headlines for scraps with the law, car crashes, alcohol, substance abuse, for his time in an NHL-supervised treatment centre and his inability to cross the border to his native Windsor or play road games in Canada.

But in the past eight years, Probert devoted himself to his family (he was saving his puck from the last goal at Maple Leaf Gardens to give to his son Jack) and to speaking engagements on behalf of the NHL Alumni.
