He Shoots, He Scores! Congratulations To San Jose Sharks GM Doug Wilson On Getting Elected To The Hockey Hall Of Fame!

Raise your sticks to the sky one time!

San Jose Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame!

Wilson played 16 years in the NHL, splitting that time between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Sharks.

The left-handed defenseman was an eight time All-Star, scored 827 career points (230 goals, 590 assists) and won the Norris Trophy as the league’s best defenseman in 1982.

He retired after the 1992 season, became HOF-eligible in 1996 but had to wait 24 years. The longest a former NHL player has had to wait.

Aside from being the team’s current general manager, Wilson holds a few other high honors within the Sharks’ organization. He was the team’s first ever captain and was also the team’s first ever All-Star.

Under his tutelage as GM, the Sharks have made the postseason 15 out of 17 years.

Congrats to you, Doug!
