Former NHL tough guy Bob Probert passed away today at the age of 45. Probert retired in 2002 totaling 163 goals and 384 points in 935 regular season games but was most recognized for his fighting ability. He amassed 3,300 PIMs during his 16 year NHL career. His best season came during the 1987-88 season where he had career-highs in goals, assists, points, and PIMs.
