"The achievements and contributions of these four individuals throughout their American Hockey League careers make them an integral part of the fabric of our storied history," David Andrews, AHL president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. "The AHL Board of Governors is proud to unanimously approve the Selection Committee's recommendation for their induction into the American Hockey League Hall of Fame."
