Arizona Coyotes vs Winnipeg Jets
WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- The Winnipeg Jets hope a little bit of Dale Hawerchuk's magic will rub off on the new generation Tuesday night at Bell MTS Place against the Arizona Coyotes.
Arguably the NHL's No. 3 player in the 1980s -- trailing Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux -- the man known as "Ducky" for Jets 1.0 will be enshrined into the new team's Hall of Fame. He joins Bobby Hull, Anders Hedberg and Ulf Nilsson from the Jets' WHA days - collectively "the Hot Line" - who were inducted in the inaugural class last year.
Hawerchuk amassed 518 goals and 819 assists during a 17-year career, including nine with the Jets. He has already been honored by the Coyotes -- the original Jets who relocated to the Arizona desert in 1996 - who retired his No. 10 sweater a decade ago, even though he never played a game for the team.Read More...
