Film Snobbery: Tough Guy - The Bob Probert Story
Deadline Hollywood: Troubles on and off the ice
On July 5, 2010, legendary NHL tough guy Bob Probert collapsed on his boat on Lake St. Clair, near Windsor and died of a heart attack. He was only 45 years old.
Bob was on his third glass of coke and eighth pill of OxyContin that day. He’d routinely take the two together to deal with his aching body. Seventeen years as the NHL’s toughest enforcer had taken its toll. As the undisputed, “heavyweight champ,” he finished his career fifth in all-time penalty minutes. He averaged 40 brutal, bare-knuckled hockey fights a year.
