Stan Mikita

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 life-time 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
