Remembering Bob Probert

from Bob Duff of the Windsor Star,

One of Brogan Probert’s fondest memories involving her father has nothing to do with hockey.

It was the day he decided to give her an impromptu driving lesson.

“We were out in the county in our 454 Chevelle SS,” recalled Bob Probert’s oldest daughter.

She got out of the car and switched seats with her dad, taking the wheel.

“He told me to floor it,” Brogan said. “I was 12 years old.

“That’s one of my favourite memories. It was a great one.”

Preserving the memory of their father, the former Detroit Red Wings tough guy who died of a heart attack at the age of 45 in 2010, is of paramount importance to the four Probert children – daughters Brogan, 19, Tierney, 17 and Declyn, 14, and twin brother Jack – and their mother Dani.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
