The hockey community is saddened by the passing of another cherished member.

According to a report from the Minnesota Star Tribune, former Minnesota North Stars defenseman Brad Maxwell passed away on Sunday after battling an aggressive form of lung cancer.

Selected as the seventh overall pick in the 1977 National Hockey League Entry Draft by the Minnesota North Stars, Maxwell's career spanned over 600 NHL games. He spent the majority of his time with the North Stars and also had brief stints with the Quebec Nordiques, Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks, and New York Rangers.

While he didn't secure a Stanley Cup victory, Maxwell's career was marked by notable achievements. He earned the Memorial Cup in 1977 as part of the New Westminster Bruins and earned recognition as an NHL All-Star during the 1983-84 season, amassing an impressive 73 points in only 78 games.


Throughout his time in the NHL, Maxwell participated in a total of 612 games, scoring 98 goals and contributing 270 assists, accumulating a career total of 368 points.

Our thoughts are with the Maxwell family, his loved ones, and the entire hockey community as they navigate through this sorrowful loss.
