CHICAGO (AP) The family of Stan Mikita said Friday that the Chicago Blackhawks Hall of Famer has been diagnosed with a suspected brain disorder and is "facing some serious health issues."

He "is currently under the care of compassionate and understanding care givers," his family said in a statement. They offered no other information on Mikita's condition other than noting that he may suffer from Lewy body dementia.

Mikita, 74, played his entire 22-season career for the Chicago Blackhawks from 1958 to 1980 and was on the Blackhawks team with Bobby Hull that won the Stanley Cup in 1961. He is the franchise's all-time leader in games played, points and assists and is second in goals.
