Dale Hawerchuk is being inducted into the Winnipeg Jets Hall of Fame prior to the Jets-Coyotes contest tonight.
Hawerchuk played 16 NHL seasons, including the first nine with the Jets. Drafted first overall in 1981, he won the Calder Cup as the league’s top rookie in 1982 after scoring 45 goals and supplying 58 assists. In fact, he led the team in scoring each of his nine seasons.
Hawerchuk was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001.
