In surprising news on Wednesday, former Blackhawks defenseman Doug Wilson was voted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Wilson was drafted by the Blackhawks with the sixth overall selection in the 1977 NHL Draft. He skated with the Hawks for 14 seasons and won the Norris Trophy after the 1981-82 season.
He is still the Blackhawks franchise’s all-time leading point producer on the blue line, posting 779 points in 938 career regular season games. Only four defensemen have scored 100 goals with the Blackhawks organization. Bob Murray ranks second with 132. Brent Seabrook (103) and Duncan Keith (101) are still active, but neither is half-way to Wilson’s 225 goals.
