The Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame welcomed some new members to the shrine Saturday in North Battleford.
Nine people and teams were recognized at the ceremony with former New York Islander Bob Bourne (pictured), and the late Eddie Litzenberger topping the list.
Bourne played 14 seasons in the NHL with the New York Islanders and Los Angeles Kings and won four Stanley Cups with the Islanders in the 80’s.
Litzenberger played 12 seasons in the NHL with Montreal, Chicago, Detroit and Toronto. He was the rookie of the year in the 1954-55 season and won four Stanley Cups—one with Chicago, and three with Toronto.
Others to be inducted were Fiona Smith Bell in the players category, Stan Dunn and Regina’s Graham Tuer in the builders category, Ken Wheler in the official category; Northwest Hockey Development Association in the grassroots category; and the 1983-84 Wilkie Outlaws and 2000-01 Lloydminster Border Kings in the team category.
