Default 2001 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductions

The 2001 Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremonies took place today at WorldCom Great Hall at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

This year's inductees bought an international flavor:

1 Canadian, Dale Hawerchuk (Rookie of the Year with Winnipeg Jets; also played for St. Louis and Philadelphia; 5, 100-point seasons)

1 Russian, Slava Festisov (2 Stanley Cups with Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998; first person to bring the Stanley Cup to Russia)

1 Finnish, Jarri Kurri (Won 5 Stanley Cups with Edmonton in the 80s & 1990; highest scoring Finnish player in NHL all-time; 2nd-highest scoring European all-time, behind Stan Mikita)

2 Americans, Craig Patrick ("Builder" as GM of the Pittsburgh Penguins), Mike Gartner (Highest scoring right wing'er of all-time)

Congrats to all the inductees..... even though Hawerchuk should have been inducted last year. :redhot:
