The hockey world mourns the passing of former NHL forward Henry Boucha at the age of 72.

Boucha's NHL journey began with the Detroit Red Wings in 1971. Throughout his career, he skated for the Red Wings, Minnesota North Stars, Kansas City Scouts, and Colorado Rockies, eventually retiring in 1977.

A pivotal moment in Boucha's career occurred in 1975 when he was assaulted by Boston Bruins forward Dave Forbes during a game. This incident left Boucha with a cracked eye bone and lasting vision issues.

Over 247 NHL games, Boucha contributed 102 points, including 53 goals and 49 assists, along with 157 penalty minutes.

Additionally, he was the second cousin of current NHL forward and Stanley Cup Champion T.J. Oshie.

Our heartfelt condolences extend to Boucha's family and friends during this challenging time.
