The four newest members of the American Hockey League Hall of Fame were enshrined Wednesday as part of the 2014 AHL All-Star Classic in St. John's, Newfoundland.
The newest members of the AHL Hall of Fame are Bill Dineen, Al MacNeil, Bob Perreault and John Slaney. They were inducted during a ceremony at St. John's Convention Centre.
Dineen was a four-time 20-goal scorer in the AHL who went on to win two Calder Cups as coach of the Adirondack Red Wings. MacNeil won three Calder Cups as a coach and his .646 winning percentage is the highest in AHL history. Perreault won four Calder Cups and 229 regular-season as a goaltender for 13 seasons in the league. Slaney, a native of St. John's, was one of the highest-scoring defensemen in AHL history.
