How is everyone doing so far this week? It’s Thursday and you have accidentally or coincidentally made your way to the historical edition of Throwback Thursday: Bobby Hull! Hope you enjoy the reading material and you have a great rest of the week!
Bobby Hull started his career in Canada young playing his minor hockey in the town of Belleville. When he got older Bobby Hull then played hockey for the Woodstock Warriors, a Jr. ‘B’ team in the fall of 1954 and eventually helped the team win the 1955 Sutherland Cup. He then moved his way up into the Ontario Hockey Association playing on both the Galt Black Hawks and the St. Catharines Teepees before finally making his leap into the NHL. In 1957 the Chicago Black Hawks probably didn’t know the 18 year-old who had just joined their team would have such an impact on the organization and the sport as a whole. Same goes for the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan right?
