Since the first class in 1945, the Hockey Hall of Fame has inducted 244 players to its hallowed halls -- recent inductees include Brett Hull, Brian Leetch, Luc Robitaille and Steve Yzerman.

Here are just a few of the Hockey Hall of Fame's most famous inductees:

  • Wayne Gretzky
  • Bobby Orr
  • Maurice Richard
  • Guy Lafleur
  • Patrick Roy
  • Tim Horton
  • Johnny Bower
  • Ken Dryden
  • Mark Messier
  • Frank Mahovlich

    Official Guide to the Players of the Hockey Hall of Fame features every player that has been honored with induction into the hall. The book profiles each Hall of Famer in a two-page hockey card-style spread, complete with stats, facts, quotes and other interesting snapshots from the star's career.

    The book also includes first-person accounts of what it means to be a member of the Hall, as well as artifacts and memorabilia from the Hockey Hall of Fame's extensive archive. Complete with more than 400 photos and illustrations, Official Guide to the Players of the Hockey Hall of Fame is an essential reference for any hockey fan.

The Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum in Toronto, Ontario, honors and preserves the history of ice hockey and those who have made outstanding contributions and achievements in the development of the game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inductees to the Hockey Hall of Fame This is a small but thick book that contains the members of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Players are listed by alphabetical order, each player having 2 pages, one for a picture and the other with facts. For those of us just trying to keep up with our children's or grandchildren's interest this does give a lot of information, but for a neophyte there are no keys to tell us what LG, GP, G, A, +/-, PIM, etc mean in the very small charts, that with my good bifocals I can just make out what it says. Other facts such as position, height, weight, born, died, seasons played are given. There is a listing of their trophies and other awards. There are 4 forwards by Andy Bathgate, Pat LaFontaine, Luc Robitaille, and Bryan Trottier. NHL trophies are shown with just the first winner and what team had the most wins. Stanley Cup winners are given, also a list of Hockey leagues and an index. If you don't let the small print bother you, this is a good book to show the members of the Hall of Fame

Editorial Reviews

This guide is a great introduction to hockey's greatest players and hockey fans will be delighted with all the information provided, including some of the anecdotes in the biographical information, such as the fact that Tim Horton was "nicknamed" 'Mister Magoo' because of his poor eyesight and 'Superman' because of his strength (p. 239) or that Stan Mikita was "one of only four players (with Alex Delvecchio, Steve Yzerman, and Mike Modano) to play at least 20 seasons with only one organization". Hockey fans and hockey trivia buffs of all ages will enjoy this publication.
