Bob Probert

One of the best scrappers in the history of the NHL is rumoured to have died today after collapsing on a boat.

Just heard about it on the SportsCentre update, very sad. He was one of the best fighters of his generation.

When you think of Old Time Hockey, you think of Bob Probert.

An ambassador to the game. He will be missed.

A true legend, who fought and played by a strict honour code. Old time hockey in its truest form.
He meant a lot to me growing up, and my thoughts are with his family at this time.
I'd like to send my condolences to the family and close friends of Bob as well.

June 5th, 1965-- July 5th, 2010

I couldn't stand the guy when he played my favorite team, which means he did his job VERY well. RIP

Very sad day. I grew up watching Probert. He's a legend in his own right and will always be remembered.

This video shows a lot about what Probert was like in his style. Listen to him around 2:30 - 2:55. Win with dignity and respect.

RIP Probie/

I just looked him up because I was bored and I knew he was a sick fighter (one of the best in the league for a looong time) but he had a 29 goal, 33 assist, 398 PIM season. That's nuts

I know he had his demons but it is still very sad to hear of him passing so young.

He was a blend of talent, toughness and honour on the ice.

Been watching hockey for the last 30 years. Bob Probert is the best fighter I have ever witnessed live or otherwise

Bob Probert is the definition of Hockey Bad Assery. Sad to hear he's gone.
