Bill Gardner
Color Analyst


Bill Gardner has served as the Chicago Wolves’ color analyst for the last 15 seasons.

Gardner spent six years as a color analyst in the National Hockey League, including four years alongside Pat Foley with the Chicago Blackhawks from 1998-2002. The Toronto native returned to the Blackhawks, where he played parts of eight seasons, after a two-year stint as the TV color analyst with the Carolina Hurricanes (1997-98) and the Hartford Whalers (1996-97). Gardner began his broadcasting career as a studio analyst for the Blackhawks on SportsChannel Chicago from 1993-96.

A nine-year NHL veteran, Gardner was drafted 49th overall by the Blackhawks in 1979. The former center notched 70 goals and 175 points in six seasons with the Blackhawks — which included an NHL-career-high 51 points in 1984-85 — before being traded to Hartford during the 1985-86 season. The Blackhawks re-signed Gardner as a free agent in 1987 and he played in Chicago’s organization for the next two seasons before retiring in 1989. He finished his NHL career with 73 goals and 188 points in 380 games. Gardner also played two seasons in the American Hockey League with the New Brunswick Hawks (1980-81) and Binghamton Whalers (1986-87) and posted 36 goals and 109 points in 98 games.
