Dick Irvin Gets His Due

10/20/2008 at 6:33pm EDT

From CBC:

The CBC Sports Hall of Fame announced Monday that Dick Irvin, Gordon Craig, Tom Fisk, Bob Moir and Fred Walker have been selected for induction this November.

“We are proud to honour these five outstanding individuals and are looking forward to welcoming them as members of the CBC Sports Hall of Fame,” said Scott Moore, executive director of CBC Sports.

Irvin is already a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame (btw, we’ve got a cool HHOF contest going on) and has been retired from broadcasting since 1999. Which is remarkable to me, since I can still hear his voice perfectly in my head. (Have you noticed that about the great hockey broadcasters? You can always remember their voices, even years later.)

For more on Dick Irvin, Stu Hackel at the NY TimesSlap Shot blog did a nice feature on him earlier this year.
