Deep Blue Sea: Watch Doug Wilson’s Hall of Fame Induction Speech

Last night, San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson was officially inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame along with Jarome Iginla, Kevin Lowe, Marian Hossa, Kim St-Pierre and Ken Holland as the induction class of 2020. The induction comes after an extra-long wait due to COVID-19, as the Hockey Hall of Fame wanted to be able to have their regular induction ceremony in front of fans.

Wilson got inducted in his 24th year of eligibility, quite the long wait. He was inducted for his efforts as a player, despite currently being a general manager. You can watch his induction speech here:

Wilson thanked Stan Mikita, Keith Magnuson and Tony Esposito during his speech, all of whom have passed away, but played a large role in his career.
