TORONTO (AP) — Ron "Chico" Maki, a member of the Chicago Blackhawks 1961 Stanley Cup champions, has died. He was 76.

A notice on the Blackhawks' website says Maki died Monday at his home in Port Dover, Ontario.

The right wing spent 15 seasons with the Blackhawks (1961-76), playing in three All-Star games.

Maki had 143 goals and 292 assists in 841 regular-season NHL games. He had 17 goals and 53 points in 113 playoff games.

Maki's late brother Wayne played two seasons with the Blackhawks and also played for St. Louis and Vancouver.

Chico Maki played junior hockey with St. Catharines, and was the captain of a Memorial Cup-winning team.

A visitation will be held Friday in Simcoe, Ontario, followed by a private family funeral on Saturday.
