In 1994, just two years after the Chicago Blackhawks had made a run to the Stanley Cup Final, Chicago was hockey mad. That’s when Buddy Meyers, Don Levin, and former Blackhawk forward Grant Mulvey were given the rights to an International Hockey League franchise.
Now, 20 years after the Wolves took the ice for the first time, co-founder and vice chairman Meyers will be inducted into the Illinois Hockey Hall of Fame.
Meyers will take his place in the Builders category.
In his 20 years with the Wolves, the franchise has won two Turner Cups as IHL champions, three IHL conference championships, three AHL conference championships, and won the Calder Cup 2001-02 and 2007-08.
