Former Toronto Maple Leafs and Chicago Blackhawks star player Eddie Olczyk has been announced as the speaker for this year’s Annual Oswego School District 308 “Coast to Coast” convocation happening on August 14. This is an event that happens each year before the new school term and gives the teachers and staff an opportunity to gather and prepare for their new group of students, and it is typically attended by roughly 2,200 members of the school district. Superintendent Dr. Matthew Wendt gave a statement that both he and everyone who is going to be there to hear Olczyk speak is extremely excited, and it should be a very energizing and fun event.
The Illinois native got his hockey career started when he was an amateur player on a AAA team that ended up winning the 1982 national title, which helped him make Team USA for the 1984 Winter Olympics. That same year he was selected in the NHL Draft as the 3rd overall pick by the Chicago Blackhawks and played with the team until 1987 when he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was traded again in 1992 to the New York Rangers and assisted the team to their Stanley Cup Championship, and then did some short term playing for the Los Angeles Kings and Pittsburgh Penguins before ending his career back at home in Chicago in 2000.
The former Center will be attending this year’s annual Oswego School District Convocation on August 14th to speak to over a couple thousand teachers and staff, and help them get ready and excited for this new school year.
