Former Winnipeg Jet Bobby Hull will not attend the upcoming Winnipeg Jets Hall of Fame festivities next month.
Hull released a statement through the Jets on Friday afternoon:
“It’s a true honour to be inducted into the Winnipeg Jets Hall of Fame alongside my former linemates, and friends, Anders Hedberg and Ulf Nilsson. While I will not be in attendance for the celebration, I want to thank the Jets for the special recognition and the wonderful fans of Winnipeg for all of their support throughout the years.”
Hull was to attend October 19-20 to be recognized for his contributions to the sport.
“We are deeply disappointed that Mr. Hull has declined our invitation to join his teammates, Anders Hedberg and Ulf Nillson when we honour their collective accomplishments,” the Jets said.
