Former Preds player Paul Kariya headed to Hockey Hall of Fame

"I am truly humbled to be elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame" Drake said.

Of the group, the "Finnish Flash" (Selanne) was the sure-fire selection.

Selanne made his mark on the league in his rookie season, in 1992-93, as a member of the Winnipeg Jets. "Probably, at some point, it played a role and people here really loved that game".

Between the 1995-96 and 2000-01 seasons, the years they spent together in Anaheim, 35 percent of the Ducks goals were scored by one of those two players. "It's an awesome feeling, it's hard to describe that".

Dave Andreychuk played in over 1600 National Hockey League regular season games in his more than 20 years in the National Hockey League.

The Jets sold their Selanne stock in February 1996, months before a move to Arizona, in a package from the newly-formed Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, which centred around Russian defenceman Oleg Tverdovsky.

"I'm lucky to have played with great people wherever I went in hockey", said Selanne, whose No. 8 is retired by the Anaheim Ducks.

Recchi is just one of 10 players to win Stanley Cups with three different teams (Pittsburgh Penguins, Carolina Hurricanes and Boston Bruins). It took being passed over four times by the committee before Kariya was selected.

"When I look back I always think of hockey as a team game and it was never about me." said Andreychuk". "This is an incredible honor". Today Kariya stays fairly far away from the game of hockey.

He was inducted into the Sabres Hall of Fame in 2008. "Their contributions to the game of hockey are well documented and their election to the Hockey Hall of Fame is richly deserved". By his retirement in 2006, he scored 640 regular season goals, while adding 698 assists. He won a Cup with the Ducks in 2007. He was their captain at the time.

Recchi was a three-time Stanley Cup victor and is in his fourth year of eligibility, with his best opportunity at gaining entry.

He played the final four years of his career with the Tampa Bay Lightning, winning a Stanley Cup with the club in 2004 by beating the Calgary Flames in seven games. It was his first year of eligibility for enshrinement in the Hockey Hall. A member of Team Canada at two Olympic Games, Kariya won gold and silver medals.

Drake, 88, served as head coach of the University of Alberta for 28 years and earned six University Cup championships.
