Probert Rushed To Hospital With No Vital Signs

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite all time enforcers along with Dave "Hammer" Shultz.

Rest in peace bob... You sure gave the hockey world a lot of entertainment.

One has to wonder if his past substance abuse may have had a hand in his death. The guy was 45 years old, sure had a lot of life left in him. From all accounts, he kicked the bad habits many years ago (back when he was with the wings), but I guess it eventually catches up.

One of the toughest guys ever to play in the NHL.

In honor of Bob here are some highlights.

God Bless you Bob you were a warrior on the ice.

Thanx for the links... Probert's picture should be in the dictionary, next to the word tough.

Shocking news.

always sad news when someone dies so young. I believe he was 45...

As is with my curious nature however, I will predict the autopsy will reveal a failed heart, probably weakened from the years and years of heavy drug use. He may be clean now, but that had to have caught up to him.

Wow. Quite possibly one of the best enforcers in NHL history. RIP.

And he could play the game too. Not overly talented but he was more than just an enforcer. RIP Bob.

I caught him with Claude Lemieux on OTR few months ago....talking & joking about their time in the league.

Probert wanted to smack him across the head.....just because. :lol:

That was one of the best episodes of OTR.

Funny... I was thinking the same thing. Look at my previous post.

sry, didn't see that post.. Yeah, I think the autopsy will reveal what we suspect. The situation of a top athlete (though retired) simply "collapsing" and showing no vital signs wreaks of ambiguity. What has no-doubt yet speculatively happened is his heart just stopped - correct me if I'm wrong but did he not have a serious cocaine addiction? And one would have to assume that a cocaine addiction no doubt lead to heroine use at some point as well.
