Leetch Gets Into Hall of Fame

The NHL announced today that Brian Leetch will join another former Ranger Luc Robitaille as well as Steve Yzerman and Brett Hull in the NHL Hall of Fame.

The induction ceremony is scheduled for November 9th.

NHL.com has a great piece on Leetch's impact on American hockey.

Newyorkrangers.com has this quote from Leetch...

“I am humbled and excited by this honor, particularly for me it is difficult to think of myself as a member of the Hall of Fame,” stated Leetch.

...congrats Brian well deserved.

Leetch will also be joined by another former Ranger goaltender and broadcaster John Davidson, who will enter the Hall’s media wing as the 2009 Foster Hewitt Memorial Award winner for his career excellence in hockey broadcasting.
