RIP: Dale Hawerchuk

The hockey world lost a great one today as Dale Hawerchuk passed away at the age of 57 following a battle with cancer.

The first overall pick of the 1981 Draft by the Winnipeg Jets, Hawerchuk put the team on the NHL map. Playing there for nine seasons, the Center won the Calder Trophy, was a Second Team All-Star in 1984/85 and had six 100 Point seasons as a Jet.  Hawerchuk also played five years for Buffalo before finishing his career with St. Louis and Philadelphia.

Over his 16-year career, Hawerchuk scored 518 Goals and 1,409 Points, and he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001.

Hawerchuk was the Head Coach of the Ontario Hockey League’s Barrie Colts at the time of his passing.

We here at would like to extend our condolences to the friends, fans and Family of Dale Hawerchuk.

Dale Hawerchuk

We imagine that in the 1980’s that Dale Hawerchuk pretty much owned the Province of Manitoba in the 1980’s. Coming off a spectacular junior career, Hawerchuk was selected by the Winnipeg Jets and promptly won the Calder Trophy and set (since broken) the record for the youngest player to get 100 points. He would go on to hit that 100 point plateau five more times and hit 1,409 for his career. As he played in a small market and in an era with many other good Centres, he still made a mark in the NHL and entered the Hockey Hall of Fame in his second year of eligibility.
