Deep Blue Sea: Doug Wilson to be inducted into HHOF

After 24 years of eligibility and a pandemic pause, San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson will finally be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, Nov. 15. Despite the wait, it seemed to be destiny; after all, Wilson wore the sweater number 24 throughout his career.

Doug Wilson is accompanied by Jarome Iginla, Marian Hossa, Kevin Lowe, Kim St-Pierre, and Ken Holland in the 2020 HHOF Induction Class.

Though Sharks fans have come to know him best as general manger, a role he’s held since 2003, but he had a 16-year flourishing NHL career before headlining the Sharks’ front office.
