Former Hawk Daze buys $1.68M Hinsdale mansion

Posted Monday at 6:27 a.m.

ELITE STREET | By Bob Goldsborough | Bucking a recent trend of former Chicago Blackhawks players listing their area homes and leaving town, retired Blackhawks winger Eric Daze has paid $1.68 million for a newly built, six-bedroom, New Orleans four-square house in Hinsdale. He also has a contract to sell his longtime four-bedroom house in Hinsdale, which has been listed for $795,000.

A 2002 league MVP who spent his entire 11-year NHL career with the Blackhawks, Daze, 35, was permanently sidelined in 2005 after chronic back problems.

A longtime homeowner in Hinsdale, Daze has traded up to a 12-room stucco house that had been listed for $1.899 million when he closed on the purchase on Mar. 18. Features include 5-1/2 baths, gas lanterns that flank the front entrance, a foyer with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, hardwood floors, oversized millwork, a family room with a limestone fireplace, a mud room with lockers, a finished lower level with a bedroom, and a kitchen with custom cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances and Carrara marble. Classified as a “green home,” the house has low-flow plumbing, a tankless water heater, and energy-efficient windows and appliances.

Daze paid $665,000 in 1999 to purchase the nine-room house that he now is trying to sell. Built in 1998, that house has 4-1/2 baths, hardwood floors on three levels, custom cherry cabinetry, a new family room, and a finished lower level.

Daze’s real estate agent in both transactions, Ann Reidy Smith of County Line Properties, declined to comment on either one.

    Eric Daze was never the league MVP. He won the All Star Game MVP in 2002.
