Chelios, Niedermayer top 2013 Hockey Hall class
Shanahan and Niedermayer are members of what’s known as the Triple Gold Club, a group of players who have won the worlds, the Olympics and a Stanley Cup.
Each player is still working in the sport. Chelios is an adviser to hockey operations in Detroit. Niedermayer is an assistant coach in Anaheim. Shanahan is the NHL senior vice president of player safety.
Niedermayer won four Stanley Cups in 17 full NHL seasons to go along with a Norris Trophy and Conn Smythe Trophy. He played for the New Jersey Devils from 1991-92 through the 2003-04 season and finished his career in Anaheim in 2010.
Among the game’s best U.S.-born players, Chelios won the Norris Trophy as the league’s top defenseman three times.
The Chicagoan split much of his career with three storied franchises in Montreal, Chicago and Detroit and was asked which team he will be affiliated when he is inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
“U.S.A.,” he said.
Shanahan finished his career with 656 goals and 698 assists. He won three Stanley Cups with the Red Wings, an Olympic gold medal and was the quintessential scoring power winger of his era.
Shanahan started his career with the Devils, went on to play in St. Louis, Hartford, Detroit and for the New York Rangers before ending his playing career back in New Jersey.
Heaney was a defenseman on Canada’s gold-medal-winning team at the 2002 Olympics and is considered one of the best female players in history.
“As a young girl playing hockey, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be going into the hall,” she said.
