Hockey Hall of Famer Igor Larionov has been appointed as a new member of the Hockey Hall of Fame Selection Committee.
Larionov, who won three Stanley Cups with the Detroit Red Wings in addition to a stellar international career, was inducted into the Hall in 2008. His term on the committee lasts March 31, 2014.
In addition, NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell and NHL Senior Vice President Jim Gregory also were appointed for three more years.
Also having their three-year term with the committee extended another three years were Hall of Famers John Davidson and Serge Savard.
The Hall also announced three new members of its Board of Directors: Toronto City Councillor Shelley Carroll; Donald Fehr, executive director of the NHL Players' Association; and Bob Nicholson, president of Hockey Canada.
You can be hyped all you want, but his game will speak for itself. He's obviously going to be a great player so we've got to make sure we keep an eye on him. Whether it's his first game or his 1,000th game, our job is to take care of business, shut him down.
