Two Detroit Red Wings legends were among the four NHL players elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame class of 2015 on Monday.
Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom, a seven-time Norris Trophy winner and four-time Stanley Cup champion, as well as Red Wings forward Sergei Fedorov, a Hart Trophy winner and four-time champion, were the latest players from Detroit’s 1990s/early 2000s dynasty to be selected to the HHoF.
Joining them in this year’s class are defensemen Chris Pronger and Phil Housley. Pronger played for five teams and won a Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in 2006-07. He’s also the last defenseman to win the Hart Trophy (2000).
Housley played for eight teams from 1982-83 through 2002-03 and tallied 1,232 points in 1,495 career games. He made one Stanley Cup Final appearance in 1997-98 with the Washington Capitals.
Peter Karmanos and Bill Hay also were elected in the builder category.
