Sad to hear this. But glad the Blackhawks were able to more properly honor and recognize him and what he did for the organization before this illness set in.

So sad. One of the nicest guys in the world to young fans. Not to mention his work with the deaf.

Just awful. Tremendous guy off the ice. I still think Stan Mikita's Donuts needs to happen too. Been saying it for years.

LBD is an awful disease. I had a family member succumb to it last year. This is not your run-of-the-mill dementia, unfortunately.

So sad, Stan was a must see to me at the panel discussions during the convention because of his outstanding wit. Always seemed to really being enjoying himself. Prayers for his family. Man the Hawks have been hit with one blow after the other this year.

Awful, truly awful. Both of my grandmothers had some form of dementia and it was the saddest thing I've ever witnessed. I wish Stan and his family the best as they try to get through this difficult time.

no it is not your run of the mill dementia....unfortunately LBD is becoming increasingly common, not sure if it is as a result of better diagnosis or not but it is the 2nd most common form of dementia these days...what is really difficult is the visual hallucinations a result of abnormal protein in the brain that affects visual processing..Parkinson's also has this...

Mikita was a magical player, sad to see he has LBD
