His family revealed the news:
The 66 year old had been battling lung cancer which had spread to other parts of his body.
His family had set up the fundraiser to help cover the out-of-pocket expenses of a new treatment Maxwell was undergoing.
Maxwell was drafted 7th overall during the 1977 NHL draft. He was serving as the President of the MN NHL Alumni before his passing.
Maxwell came close to winning a Stanley Cup making it to the 1981 Stanley Cup Finals. Maxwells' North Stars ended up losing to the New York Islanders in five games.
Maxwell played 612 NHL games with the North Stars, Nordiques, Maple Leafs and Rangers. In his career he scored 98 goals and 368 points.
Everyone at BladeofSteel send our condolences to the Maxwell family in this difficult time.
