Defender Brad Maxwell, who briefly wore the Quebec Nordiques uniform, died Sunday at the age of 66.
The Manitoban succumbed to lung cancer, his family announced on a GoFundMe page that was used to raise money for his treatments.
Maxwell is best known for his stint with the Minnesota North Stars from 1977 to 1984. The seventh overall pick in the 1977 draft helped the team reach the Stanley Cup Finals in 1981.
Recognized as much for his talent in attack as for his robustness, he achieved a season of 73 points and 225 penalty minutes in 1983-1984. He was traded to the Nordiques during the following campaign along with Brent Ashton. Quebec had in return ceded Bo Berglund and Tony McKegney.
In 612 career National League games, Maxwell has amassed 368 points. He also played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks and New York Rangers.
