Mikita, the franchise’s all-time leading scorer, died Tuesday. He was 78.
Mikita played for 22 seasons with Chicago, from 1958 to 1980, and was a member of the 1961 Stanley Cup championship team. He also was an eight-time All-Star, two-time Hart Trophy winner as league MVP and member of the 1983 Hockey Hall of Fame class.
Stan’s family didn’t have to do this, but they recognize what a special part of this hockey community he was. Such a gracious gesture. https://t.co/u9UPMK589W— alyssa (@alyssaacorrine) August 8, 2018
