The Hockey Hall of Fame

Yesterday, November 13, Finnish right wing Teemu Selanne headlined the high-scoring class inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Ontario. Selanne, in his first year of eligibility, was joined by left wingers Dave Andreychuk and Paul Kariya and right wing Mark Recchi. Former women’s star Danielle Goyette, Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, and college coach Clare Drake were also enshrined in the hall.

Selanne set a National Hockey League (NHL) rookie record with 76 goals for the Winnipeg Jets during the 1992-1993 season. He went on to tally 684 goals (11th all time) and 773 assists over 21 seasons spent mostly with the Anaheim Ducks. Andreychuk scored 640 career goals and led the Tampa Bay Lightning to the team’s only Stanley Cup (NHL championship) in 2004. Kariya had 402 goals and 587 assists over 15 seasons with Anaheim, the Colorado Avalanche, the Nashville Predators, and the St. Louis Blues. Recchi won Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins (1991), Carolina Hurricanes (2006), and Bruins (2011), and racked up 577 goals and 956 assists over his 22-year NHL career.

Goyette won three Olympic medals—two gold (2002 and 2006) and one silver (1998)—playing for Canada’s women’s national team. Jacobs has owned the Bruins since 1975 and has been chairman of the NHL Board of Governors since 2007. Drake won six Canadian championships over 28 seasons as head coach at the University of Alberta. He also coached professionally with Winnipeg and the Edmonton Oilers.
