Bio

Tony Esposito Bio

When Tony Esposito was obtained by the Chicago Black Hawks on June 15, 1969, it merited only small print in the Windy City. The Black Hawks finished last the previous season, he was a spare part for the Montreal Canadiens and, besides, the Cubs were in first place.

But when training camp convened in September, Tony O seized the No. 1 goalie job, led the Black Hawks to a miraculous turnaround and became a bastion of stability throughout a Hall of Fame career.
