Stan Mikita - Sports Commission Bronze Statue

In the midst of a backhand pass, Stan Mikita stands larger than life cast in white bronze next to his lifetime cohort Bobby Hull. His intensity and focus of where he looks to move next are portrayed in this super-realistic sculpture, similarly to his real-life play. Stan and Bobby are located on the northeast plaza outside of the United Center near Madison Street(in front of Gate 3 ½.)
 
“These statues represent the timeless reminder that our franchise took another step forward tonight, as we honor the two greatest players who have ever worn the Chicago Blackhawks sweater.” – John McDonough
 
“Hull and Mikita are depicted in action, right down to the tape on their hockey socks and laces tied exactly the way they were years earlier.” – NHL.com Correspondent
