The hockey world grieves the loss of former NHL goaltender Dunc Wilson, who passed away at the age of 75 in Utila, Honduras.

Wilson's remarkable career left an indelible mark on the Vancouver Canucks, where he achieved the distinction of recording their first-ever shutout in NHL history.


During his 10-year NHL journey, Wilson played for multiple teams, including the Canucks, Leafs, Rangers, Penguins, and even a brief appearance with the Flyers, participating in 287 games.


Notably, with the Leafs, Wilson achieved a .889 save percentage, a 3.31 goals-against average, and secured one shutout. His hometown connection to Toronto added a special dimension to his career.

Wilson's standout season came with the Penguins in 1976-77, earning him a spot on the all-star team, showcasing his skills with five shutouts, a .906 save percentage, and a 2.95 goals-against average.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Wilson's family and friends during this difficult time. We extend our sympathies to all who were touched by his contributions to the sport of hockey. May he rest in peace.
