Bobby Hull has been in the news a lot the last seven days. The NHL Alumni awarded Hull it's Man Of The Year award. It's quite the honor, but Hull is just happy to be a Blackhawk once again. He has a lot of praise for the young Hawks.
The NHL Alumni also unveiled it's very own charitable NHL Alumni Signature Wine Series. Now you can get Gordie Howe's Chardonnay and Tony Esposito's Cabarnet Sauvignon, amongst many other selections. As Joe O'Connor of the National Post suggests - He Shoots, He Pours!
