Six More Hockey Names Enter The Hockey Hall Of Fame Tonight

from Jon Lane of NHL.com,

Guy Carbonneau, Vaclav Nedomansky, Hayley Wickenheiser, Sergei Zubov, Jim Rutherford and Jerry York will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Monday.

Regarded as the greatest women's hockey player, Wickenheiser played 23 years with Canada women's national team, winning four Olympic gold medals (2002, 2006, 2010, 2014) -- she is the leading scorer in Olympic history with 51 points (18 goals, 33 assists) in 26 games -- and the IIHF World Championship seven times. Wickenheiser is currently the assistant director of player development for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Zubov played 16 NHL seasons, winning the Stanley Cup with the New York Rangers in 1994 and the Dallas Stars in 1999. He is the Stars/Minnesota North Stars leader among defensemen in points (549), goals (111), assists (438), games (839), power-play goals (60), and plus/minus (plus-103). His No. 56 will be retired by the Stars next season.

Carbonneau won the Stanley Cup twice with the Montreal Canadiens (1986, 1993), once with the Stars (1999), and won the Selke Trophy, voted as the best defensive forward in the NHL, three times (1988, 1989 and 1992).
