Willie Huber, a Hamilton resident who spent 10 seasons in the National Hockey League, passed away suddenly from a suspected heart attack yesterday morning. He was 52.The full obit is here; thanks to Brad Kurtzberg of Inside Hockey for the heads up.
First Walt Poddubny last year and now Willie. Huber was a massive, lumbering defenseman who, frankly, wasn't particularly good. But he worked hard, had a thunderous slap shot and played 266 games with the Rangers (including playoffs). More on his career here. Condolences to his family.
