Your 2022 US Hockey Hall Of Fame Inductees

11/30/2022 at 11:21pm EST

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of the NHL website,

The United States Hockey Hall of Fame celebrated its 50th anniversary Wednesday when it inducted the Class of 2022 at Saint Paul RiverCentre.

The class represented how far American hockey has come in a half-century, how it keeps striving for more.

The late Warren Strelow, a pioneering goaltending coach, received the Lester Patrick Trophy for outstanding service to hockey in the United States on the day Ryan Miller, the winningest American goalie in NHL history, was enshrined.

There were two female players: Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando, twin sisters who each won an Olympic gold medal and six world championships.

There was the first sled hockey player: Steve Cash, who won three Paralympic gold medals and five world championships.

And then there was the late Jim Johannson, the beloved USA Hockey executive who dedicated himself to developing American players from the grassroots to the elite levels.

Highlights From The HHOF Induction Speeches

from the NHL,

Here are some of the key moments from the induction speeches of Daniel Alfredsson, Roberto Luongo, Riikka Sallinen, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin and the family of Herb Carnegie, who was inducted as a Builder, as well as from NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's comments.

HERB CARNEGIE: Stepping outside the box

Commonly regarded as the best Black player never to play in the NHL, Carnegie would channel his positive energy into making hockey a better game in myriad ways. On Monday, his inspirational, pioneering work was celebrated by his daughter, Bernice, and son, Dale, upon the late center's induction in the Builders category.

"He took the skills he learned from hockey and transposed them into his life-off-ice skills," Bernice said. "He was an entrepreneur, a trailblazer that kept stepping outside the box."...

Bernice brought the Meridian Hall Theatre audience to its feet as she closed her acceptance speech with a powerful, strong, timely message.

"I know my father is calling out to all of us to honor the sport he so loved by continuing to do it justice," she said. "We are responsible for making the sport better. We are responsible for ending sexism, gender bias, racism and homophobia.

"We are responsible for making all areas of our lives more accepting and inclusive. This was my father's life work. This is what I learned from him. This is why I'm grateful every day … that he gave me part of his vision and that we can share that with others." -- Dave Stubbs
