Honoured Members: Hockey Hall of Fame

Overview

When Captain William T. Sutherland established the International Hockey Hall of Fame in Kingston, Ontario, he could not have possibly foreseen what his vision would become. In 1945, there was only an idea—to honour the games' greatest by memorializing their efforts in perpetuity. In the case of living members, that meant presenting them with a plaque recognizing their hockey achievements and abilities.

Sutherland was a great collector of hockey memorabilia, and hoped to combine ...

Overview

When Captain William T. Sutherland established the International Hockey Hall of Fame in Kingston, Ontario, he could not have possibly foreseen what his vision would become. In 1945, there was only an idea—to honour the games' greatest by memorializing their efforts in perpetuity. In the case of living members, that meant presenting them with a plaque recognizing their hockey achievements and abilities.

Sutherland was a great collector of hockey memorabilia, and hoped to combine his sticks and gloves and pucks with the players' lives and memories in a museum. Although he died before his dream was realized, and although his dream shifted away from Kingston before it became reality, it was his vision that started what today is the greatest repository of hockey history in the world—the Hockey Hall of Fame in downtown Toronto.

There were but men honoured in 1945 by Sutherland, but today there are more than 300 in the hall—players, builders, and officials who have contributed to the game, from its origins in the late 19th century to the present and most recently retired superstars of the modern era.

Honoured Members is a tribute to the game and to the Hockey Hall of Fame. It offers biographies of everyone inducted into its pantheon of greats and includes photos of each member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. From Lord Stanley and the unforgettable players of the pre—NHL years to the 2003 inductees—Players Grant Fuhr, and Builders Brian Kilrea and Mike Ilitch—Honoured Members celebrates the lives of those who established, developed, and perfected the world's fastest sport.

The summer of 2003 marked the 10th anniversary of the Hockey Hall of Fame's move toits present location in the heart of downtown Toronto, a 55,000—square—foot location complete with everything from sticks and sweaters to interactive games and the International Zone and the Great Hall, featuring hockey's greatest trophies. One of the signature tourist destinations in the city, it recently underwent an extensive redevelopment to keep up with the times and provide first—time visitors with something they've never seen before and returning guests a fresh face of the game they love.
