Bobby Hull was a Canadian ice hockey player who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time.
His blonde hair, skating speed, end-to-end rushes, and ability to shoot the puck at very high velocity all earned him the name “The Golden Jet”.
His talents were such that one to five opposing players were often assigned just to shadow him.
He won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player twice and the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s leading point scorer three times, while helping the Black Hawks win the Stanley Cup in 1961.
