Dale Hawerchuk was born on April 4, 1963, in the Rexdale area of Toronto. At an extremely early age his parents, Ed and Eleanor, moved the family to Oshawa. Dale received his first pair of skates at age two and, as his father put it, “He was skating before he could walk.” Beginning competitive hockey at age four, Hawerchuk demonstrated superior skills almost immediately. At a Peewee tournament in Montreal, he scored all eight goals during an 8-1 victory in the finals, smashing Guy Lafleur’s long-held record. By age 15, the famed Oshawa Generals offered him a tryout. He didn’t make the club, but the Generals tried to hide him in their local Junior ‘B’ club, a plan that didn’t work. dale hawerchuk wiki, dale hawerchuk wikipedia
