United States Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2013

Here we are in early December and the hockey world, at least the United States hockey world, is already looking to Detroit.

Just under a month away from the Greater Detroit area hosting the largest hockey event in history with the Winter Classic at Michigan Staduim and  the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame is inducting the class of the 2013 right in the heart of Hockeytown.

The 2013 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame includes: Cindy Curley, Bill Guerin, Peter Karmanos Jr., Ron Mason and Doug Weight.

Along with the 2013 Class the ceremony will also see Kevin Allen receive Lester Patrick Trophy for outstanding service to hockey in the United States.

For many years, I've asked NHL players what it feels like to win the Stanley Cup, and they always look as if they have been asked to define the meaning of life. …

That's where I am at in trying to explain how meaningful it is to me to be presented with the Lester Patrick award tonight. I simply can't explain.

For the full story on Kevin Allen (by Kevin Allen) check out the story on USAToday.

The stage is set…

… though we are presently in the heart of Hockeytown the focus is on the past accomplishments and a look to the future of hockey in the United States.
