The Chicago Wolves would like to extend sincere condolences to the Wirtz family and the Blackhawks organization on the passing of Rocky Wirtz.
“Hockey and Chicago lost a true champion,” Wolves owner Don Levin said. “He came into a situation that was dismal and he turned the Blackhawks around quick and he put together a team that won championship after championship after championship. That’s hard to do. I don’t know if he ever received the accolades he deserved. He was the hockey guy in Chicago, for sure.”
