Mike Bossy Cause Of Death
Mike Bossy had been diagnosed with lung cancer in late 2021 and had fought as hard as he could through the adversity, just as he did in his hockey career, but unfortunately left us this morning.
Bossy, who was an analyst for TVA Sports up until this year, announced in October 2021 that he would be stepping away from his on-air duties to receive treatment for his cancer.
How Did Mike Bossy Die?
He died Because Of Lung Cancer. He was a hero for Islanders fans, but also for his home province of Quebec, and will go down in time as one of Quebec’s most prominent goal scorers of all time.
Bossy won the Calder Memorial Trophy in 1978 as NHL the new hotness. He won the Conn Smythe Trophy in the 1982 Stanley Cup end of the season games as the most significant player.
He is one of two players to score successive Stanley Cup-winning objectives (1982 and 1983) and the main player to keep four game-dominating objectives in a single season finisher series (1983 Conference Final).
He is the NHL’s untouched forerunner in normal objectives scored per ordinary season game, holds the NHL’s third-most elevated record-breaking normal focuses scored per customary season game and is one of just five players to score 50 objectives in 50 games.
He is tied for the record for most 50 objective seasons with Wayne Gretzky with nine, in spite of the fact that his were successive while Gretzky’s were not, so Bossy holds the record for most sequential 50 objective seasons without help from anyone else.
