The Hockey Hall of Fame got an infusion of goaltenders on Monday with the induction of Henrik Lundqvist, Tom Barrasso and Mike Vernon.
The ceremony in Toronto also included players Pierre Turgeon and Caroline Ouellette, coach Ken Hitchcock and late executive/agent Pierre Lacroix.
For Vernon, the call to the Hall was a long time coming.
"To have this happen 21 years after I finished my NHL career, this means more to me and my family than you could possibly know," Vernon said. "Mom, you asked me once if I was ever going to go into the Hall of Fame? Well, I made it."
