    I always liked Probert and Kocur. RIP big guy! God bless your family and loved ones.


    WINDSOR, Ont. — Former National Hockey League tough-guy forward Bob Probert died Monday after collapsing in a boat on Lake St. Clair near Windsor.

    The death was confirmed in Windsor late Monday afternoon by OPP spokeswoman Shawna Coulter.

    Emergency crews performed CPR on the former Detroit Red Wings player on shore and transported the 45-year-old to Windsor Regional Hospital.

    Probert, who was born in Windsor, played 16 seasons in the NHL. He played for the Red Wings for nine seasons and the Chicago Blackhawks for seven others.

    The bruising left-winger scored 163 career NHL goals and set up 221 others for a regular-season total of 384 points, but was best noted for his pugilistic skills. Probert amassed 3,300 penalty minutes in 935 career games, ranking sixth on the all-time penalty minutes leaders' list.

    He was drafted 46th overall in the 1983 NHL entry draft from the Ontario Hockey League's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and played his first game with the Red Wings in the 1985-86 season. He retired following the 2001-2002 season.

    Probert never won a Stanley Cup but often led his team in the accumulation of penalty minutes. He was an all-star in 1988.

    Probert was suspended indefinitely after he was arrested for attempting to smuggle cocaine across the Canada-U.S. border in March, 1989. He was welcomed back into the league but barred from travelling with Red Wings for road games in Canada during the 1990-91 and 1991-92 seasons as he appealed a ruling that would have seen him deported from the United States if he left and re-entered the country. He was granted permission to play in Canada on Dec. 7, 1992.

    The Probert family has called a 6 p.m. Eastern time news conference at Windsor Regional Hospital to issue a statement.
