The Winnipeg Jets will honour late team legend and Winnipeg Jets Hall of Fame member Dale Hawerchuk with a statue unveiling at True North Square’s plaza at the corner of Honourary Dale Hawerchuk Way (Graham Avenue) and Hargrave Street prior to their Oct. 1 pre-season game against the Edmonton Oilers.

The event will include an address from Hawerchuk’s wife Crystal, the NHL’s Sr. Vice President of Hockey Operations and former Winnipeg Jet Kris King, former Canada Cup teammate and fellow Hockey Hall of Fame member Paul Coffey, former Jets teammate Dave Ellett, former Jets teammate and current Jets Associate Coach Scott Arniel, and Jets forward Mark Scheifele, to whom Hawerchuk was an influential coach and mentor. The ceremony will also be attended by many of Hawerchuk’s former teammates and Jets alumni including Randy Carlyle, Serge Savard, Dave Babych, Paul MacLean, Laurie Boschman, Lucien DeBlois, Jim Kyte, Tim Watters, Brian Mullen, Ray Neufeld, Jimmy Mann, Randy Gilhen and Jordy Douglas. A special fly-by featuring four 17 Wing CT-155 Hawks will cap off the unveiling ceremony.






Along with the unveiling of the statue sculpted by Erik Blome of Figurative Art Studio, fans are invited to celebrate Hawerchuk’s life and legacy at True North Square and the surrounding area before and after the event. Honourary Dale Hawerchuk Way (Graham Avenue between Carlton Street and Donald Street), and Hargrave Street (north of St. Mary Avenue and south of Portage Avenue) will be closed from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. to accommodate the ceremony. A live DJ and the Jets community team will remain on site between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. as fans are able to get a closer look at the statue and enter Canada Life Centre for the Jets vs. Oilers 7 p.m. puck drop. Access to key Hargrave Street parkades – Cityplace Lot 1 adjacent to Canada Life Centre south of Portage Avenue, and Lot 4 north of St. Mary Avenue – will be maintained.

All fans attending the Oct. 1 pre-season game will receive a Dale Hawerchuk commemorative coin. Tickets are available now at WinnipegJets.com/TICKETS.
