Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mike Hudson
Centre Mike Hudson was selected in the seventh round, 140th overall in the 1986 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks. He grew up playing minor hockey in his hometown of Guelph, Ontario before advancing to Major Junior Hockey with the Hamilton Steelhawks. He also played two seasons with the Sudbury Wolves.

As an NHL rookie, Hudson responded with seven goals and 23 points in 41 games for the Blackhawks in 1988-89. Hudson held a spot on the Chicago roster for three years and helped the club advance to the 1992 Stanley Cup finals, where the team was swept by Mario Lemieux and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Hudson played with seven NHL teams but was unable to gain a regular spot on any of the team's rosters. In 1997 at the age of 30, Hudson moved to Germany where he played in the German Elite League for two years before retiring in 1999.
