Bill Wirtz Dead at 77

Chicago Blackhawks owner, Hockey Hall of Famer, business tycoon, and philantrophist Bill Wirtz has died at 77 today. The Chicago Sun-Times has the news about his death. A full account of who Bill Wirtz was and why his death is big among the hockey world has been written by John McGourty at Statements upon his passing has been made by Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

My condolences to the Chicago organization, to his friends, and to his family for their loss.

Sad for the Wirtz family, happy for the NHL. The Chicago Blackhawks may actually become a real team again. Wow.
