Wickenheiser, Carbonneau headline HOF class

Penguins' GM Jim Rutherford to be inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame

Other inductees include Vaclav Nedomansky, Sergei Zubov and Guy Carbonneau, as well as college coach Jerry York in the builder category.

A native of Watertown, Mass., York has spent over four decades in the NCAA coaching ranks and has been the head coach of the Eagles since 1994.

In 79 global games over 21 seasons, Wickenheiser recorded 58 goals and 88 assists for 146 points.

York coached Bowling Green and Boston College to five national titles and has the most wins of any active NCAA Division I men's hockey coach.

Among those passed over by the selection committee this year were Daniel Alfredsson, Jeremy Roenick, Rod Brind'Amour and Alexander Mogilny.

"I had a chance to walk into the Hall of Fame". He was a great defensive player and he could play offence, too.

Carbonneau's career with the Canadiens came to a sad and silly end the following summer after the team was eliminated by the Boston Bruins in the first round of the playoffs.

Legacy: A two-time Cup victor and power-play wizard who was an elite puck distributor. "He has ties to the Penguins dating back to his playing days in the 1970s, and his impact on the franchise as our GM, in leading us to back-to-back Stanley Cups, has been exceptional". "You realize you've done something in your life that you can be proud of".

VACLAV NEDOMANSKYWhy he's in: Because in the late 1960s and early 1970s, he was every bit as good as the great players the Soviet hockey factory was producing.

Nedomansky helped Czechoslovakia earn the 1968 Olympic silver medal and win the 1972 world championships.

Legacy: An worldwide hero whose exploits were overshadowed by the Soviets' Big Red Machine. He defected to Canada through Switzerland in 1974 and joined the World Hockey Association's Toronto Toros.

Comment: "I had no language, at first it was very hard".

The Canadian hockey legend was taking a medical school exam and would've received a failing grade had she used her phone, Lanny McDonald, the Hall's chairman of the board, told reporters on the conference call celebrating the 2019 class Tuesday, according to TSN's Frank Seravalli. His five NCAA championships are tied for second all-time, one behind Vic Heyliger of the University of MI. He also became the first-ever coach in college hockey history to win 1,000 games, passing the milestone in 2016.

York coached current and former National Hockey League players such as Johnny Gaudreau, Brooks Orpik, Brian Gionta and Patrick Eaves. The defenseman won two Stanley Cups, one with the Rangers and one with the Stars. "They make you a better coach when you have those players". And it was very successful and he came and watched it and it was the week before Labor Day and he asked me to come and see him the day after Labor Day and he offered me a job that started a 30-year relationship with him.

Carbonneau becomes the 59th member of the Canadiens organization to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame and the first since Mark Recchi in 2017.

Jim Rutherford will also be inducted as a "builder".

"When I made the decision in '74 to finish my dream, I jumped right into it and I'm so happy I did that", Nedomansky said.
