HHOF Announces New Appointees To The Selection Committee

TORONTO (November 23, 2021) – Lanny McDonald, Chair of the Board of the Hockey Hall of Fame, announced today new appointments to the Hockey Hall of Fame Selection Committee.   The appointments were made at the Directors’ meeting held on November 15, 2021 and subsequently confirmed by the new appointees.

After 22 years of distinguished service, including 7 years as Chair, John Davidson will retire from the Selection Committee on December 31, 2021.  Mike Gartner, a member of the Selection Committee since 2009, will assume the role as Chair and Cammi Granato will join the 18-member Committee, both effective January 1, 2022.  Gartner’s Hall of Fame career spanned over 19 NHL seasons producing 708 goals, 627 assists and 1,335 points crowned by his induction in 2001.   As one of the first two women inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2010, Granato captained Team USA to the gold medal at the Winter Olympic Games in 1998 and retired as the all-time leading scorer in women’s international hockey.  She is currently a scout for the Seattle Kraken.

“I am very pleased and honoured to welcome Cammi to the Selection Committee whose deliberations in recognition of excellence will be complemented by her knowledge and active role in the game of hockey”, said McDonald.  “I also express our appreciation and gratitude for the outstanding contributions and leadership that JD has brought to the Selection Committee throughout his tenure, and I know with Mike’s experience in past selection proceedings there will be exceptional continuity going forward.”

The Selection Committee will meet on June 26 & 27, 2022 to consider duly nominated candidates for election into Honoured Membership. The announcement of the new inductees will be made on June 27, 2022 and the annual Induction Celebration will be held on Monday, November 14, 2022.
