Chicago enlists the Golden Jet
Eric Duhatschek's Friday notebook is, as always, chock full of interesting NHL tidbits, including this one on Blackhawks legend Bobby Hull:
One more sign that the Blackhawks are gradually moving into the 21st century. Newly installed president John McDonough, whom they convinced to join them from the Cubs last month, ended the Blackhawks' long estrangement with Bobby Hull this week, bringing him back into the fold as an official team ambassador, along with another former Chicago great Stan Mikita. They are two of only four Blackhawks' players to have their numbers retired; Hull and Chicago have been on the outs for the better part of 35 years, or after he bolted the team in a contract dispute to join the Winnipeg Jets of the WHA.Good stuff.
