Cheli, Shanny headed to Hall of Fame

The Hockey Hall of Fame introduced its incoming induction class of 2013 on Tuesday afternoon, which includes former Red Wings Chris Chelios and Brendan Shanahan, as well as Scott Niedermayer.

“It’s a great honor to be selected for the Hockey Hall of Fame,” said Chelios in a statement released by the organization. “To have such a long career in the game has been fantastic for me, and being named to the Hall is a huge recognition for what I was able to accomplish.”

Chelios joined the Montreal Canadiens and was named to the NHL’s All-Rookie team in 1984-85 and was runner-up as rookie of the year to Pittsburgh's Mario Lemieux. Chelios was part of the 1986 Canadiens’ Stanley Cup winning team and won the James Norris Trophy as defenseman of the year in 1988-89.

Chelios finished his 26 year playing career at the age of 48 with the Atlanta Thrashers and Chicago Wolves in 2009-10

“I’ve always been fortunate to have great teammates and coaches throughout my career,” said Shanahan in a prepared statement. “At every level I have tried to learn and my key to success was having people around me that helped me improve my game.”.

Shanahan was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the first round (2nd overall) in 1987. A member of the Devils for four seasons, before signing as a free agent by the St. Louis Blues in 1991. He player four seasons with the Blues and had back-to-back 50 goal seasons in 1992-93 and 1993-94.
