Hawerchuk was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets with the first selection in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. He went on to play nine seasons (1981-1990) with Winnipeg, appearing in 713 games and recording 379 goals, 550 assists and 929 points with the Jets. He ranks as the Jets/Coyotes all-time leader in goals (379) and points (929) and ranks 2nd in assists (550) and 4th in games played (713). He also ranks 1st in power play goals (122), 1st in hat tricks (12), T-3rd in shorthanded goals (12) and T-5th in game-winning goals (29). He was the Jets most prolific scorer in franchise history.
