The NHL announced their 2013 Hall of Fame class on Tuesday in Toronto. The players and coach inducted as part of the 2013 Hall of Fame class were Chris Chelios, Scott Niedermayer, Brendan Shanahan, retired female player Geraldine Heaney and late ex-coach Fred Shero.
Out of the players that received the honor, Chelios and Niedermayer were in their first-year of eligibility for consideration.
Your usual names of Rob Blake, Paul Kariya, Rod Brind’Amour, Keith Tkachuk, Sergei Zubov, Phil Housley, Dave Andreychuk, Eric Lindros and Tom Barrasso are the names causing the most controversy as omissions.
For the three men that received the honor, they will be officially inducted to the Hall of Fame on November of this year.
