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.
Very happy that old guy finally scored. It was great. You see the excitement on his face. I remember when I scored my first goal and it's just such a great feeling. Anytime you can help contribute to a team win it's a lot of fun.
