Hall Of Fame Media Inductees

Yesterday the Hockey Hall of Fame announced their annual media inductees.  The press inductee is Dave Molinari, a longtime Pittsburgh sports writer.  He wins the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award.  The broadcaster inductee is John Davidson, who was a popular New York Rangers color commentator before leaving that post in 2006 to become the St Louis Blues president of hockey operations.  He wins the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award.

Dave Molinari has had a 26 year career writing about the Pittsburgh Penguins.  Through most of it he has been the beat writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

John Davidson joined the TV staff for MSG in 1983 and has been the Rangers color commentator from 1986 to 2006.  He has been part of hockey broadcasts on CBC, Fox, ABC, NBC, ESPN and OLN (before it became Versus).

Both are deserving inductees.  This announcement is often overlooked in the media itself, so I feel it should be highlighted.

The main induction announcement for the Hockey Hall of Fame will be on June 23rd.
