First-Time Hall NomineesJune 3, 2009, by
Brian Leetch is one of the many on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time. He should be a shoe-in, as should other first timers Steve Yzerman, Brett Hull, Alexander Mogilny and Luc Robitaille. I don’t know who else is on the ballot, nor do I know what the maximum number of players voted in per year is. But these five players belong in the Hall, no doubt about it.
In other news, John “OH BABY” Davidson will receive the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award. The Foster Hewitt Memorial Award is an award named after Foster Hewitt and presented by the Hockey Hall of Fame to members of the radio and television industry who make outstanding contributions to their profession and the game of hockey during their broadcasting career (source: Wikipedia).
Congrats to JD, and future congrats to Leetch, and the other soon-to-be Hall of Famers.
