The 1982–83 Chicago Black Hawks season was the fifty-seventh season of operation of the Chicago Black Hawks in the National Hockey League.

Offseason[edit]

During the off-season, the Black Hawks hired Orval Tessier to become the head coach of the club. Tessier spent parts of three seasons playing in the NHL with the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins from 1954-1961. As a head coach, Tessier led the Cornwall Royals to the 1972 Memorial Cup championship, and also led the Kitchener Rangers to the 1981 Memorial Cup final. Tessier then led the New Brunswick Hawks to the 1981-82 Calder Cup. This would be Tessier's first NHL head coaching job.

At the 1982 NHL Entry Draft, the Black Hawks selected Ken Yaremchuk with their first round draft pick, seventh overall. Yaremchuk played with the Portland Winter Hawks of the WHL in 1981-82, scoring 58 goals and 157 points in 72 games.

The club also named Darryl Sutter as the new team captain, as former captain Terry Ruskowski would be traded to the Los Angeles Kings early in the season.

With the Colorado Rockies relocating to East Rutherford, New Jersey and becoming the New Jersey Devils, the NHL made a minor realignment of the divisions. The Devils moved from the Smythe Division to the Patrick Division, while the Winnipeg Jets moved from the Norris Division into the Smythe Division.

Regular season[edit]

The Black Hawks got off to a quick start, as through their first 25 games, Chicago had a league best record of 17-3-5, earning 39 points. The club continued their torrid pace, as they had a 25-6-6 record through their first 37 games before going into a slump where they lost five of their next seven games. Chicago would attempt to strengthen their club, acquiring Curt Fraser from the Vancouver Canucks for former first round draft pick Tony Tanti. The Black Hawks continued their winning ways, and finished the season with a 47-23-10 record, earning 104 points, and finishing in first place in the Norris Division, fourth overall in the NHL. This marked the first time since 1973-74 that the Hawks finished with over 100 points.

Offensively, Chicago was led by Denis Savard, who scored 35 goals and a club record 121 points. Steve Larmer had a breakout season, scoring 43 goals and 90 points, while finishing with a team high +44 rating. Al Secord scored a team high 54 goals, and finished with 86 points, as well as leading the team with 180 penalty minutes. Darryl Sutter reached the 30 goal plateau for the second time in his career, as he finished with 31 goals and 61 points. On defence, Doug Wilson led the way, scoring 18 goals and 69 points, while Doug Crossman had 13 goals and 53 points.

In goal, Murray Bannerman appeared in 41 games, going 24-12-5 with a 3.10 GAA, while earning four shutouts. Tony Esposito split time with him, playing in 39 games, going 23-11-5 with a 3.46 GAA and one shutout.
