Lou Angotti, a former center and right-winger for 11 seasons in the NHL and WHA, has passed away at the age of 83 as reported on social media by pro hockey alumni. Angotti was originally signed to a pro contract by the Toronto Maple Leafs, but prior to his arrival in the NHL, he was traded to the New York Rangers in 1964. He played a season and a half in New York before he was sold to the Chicago Blackhawks. He played in Chicago for another year and a half before on June 6, 1967, he was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers from the Chicago Black Hawks in the 1967 expansion draft. But his stay in Philly was brief, as on June 11, 1968, he was traded by the Philadelphia Flyers with Ian Campbell to the St. Louis Blues for Darryl Edestrand and Gerry Melnyk. But then he was quickly traded on the same day to Pittsburgh for Ab McDonald. His stay in Pittsburgh was again short-lived as he was traded the following season by the Pittsburgh Penguins with 1st round draft pick in 1971 (Gene Carr) to the St. Louis Blues for 2nd round draft pick in 1971 (Brian McKenzie), Craig Cameron and Ron Schock. But five days later he was again packing his bags as on June 11, 1969 he was claimed by the Chicago Blackhawks from the St. Louis Blues in Intra-League Draft. Lou had finally found a home as he played on the Chicago squad for the next five seasons. June 12, 1973, claimed by the St. Louis Blues from the Chicago Black Hawks in Intra-League Draft. This time he actually played a season in St Louis before being released, but he was again on the move back to his beloved Chicago, but this time playing in the WHA for the Chicago Cougars. This was the last stop in his NHL&WHA career. Now, if all those trades and signings have your head spinning, imagine how his family felt. During his pro career, he collected 105 goals with 191 assists. Lou also was a 3 season coach in the NHL for the Blues and Penguins.Condolences to his family and friends, and may he Rest in Peace.
