The wait is finally over: Sergei Zubov and Guy Carbonneau are officially Hall of Famers.

Named to the Hockey Hall of Fame's Class of 2019 Tuesday, the pair of Stars greats will be formally enshrined on Nov. 18 in Toronto. Their election into hockey lore ended seven years of waiting for Zubov and 16 for Carbonneau, who were both teammates on the Stars' 1999 Stanley Cup winning team.

Upon the officially announcment, the hockey world was quick to congratulate both Zubov and Carbonneau.
