NHL Veteran Goaltender Passes Away at 75


We regretfully announce the passing of Dunc Wilson, a revered NHL goaltender, at the age of 75.

Dunc Wilson, who registered Vancouver's first-ever shutout in Canucks' NHL history, has passed away at the age of 75 in Utila, Honduras where he had been living for many years. Condolences to the family and friends of Dunc 💙#CanucksAlumni


Throughout a decade in the NHL, Wilson played with the Flyers, Canucks, Maple Leafs, Penguins, and Rangers. Over his career, he secured a save percentage of .883, a goals-against average of 3.75, and achieved 8 shutouts.

One of his standout moments was being named to the all-star team in the 1976-77 season, thanks to an outstanding performance with the Penguins that year, boasting five shutouts, a .905 sv%, and a 2.95 GAA.

Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of Dunc Wilson.
