Selanne, Kariya headline Hockey Hall of Fame class of 2017

Ellis Copeland | 27 June, 2017, 05:33

The 2017 class is rounded out by legendary Ducks skaters Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya, Canadian coach Clare Drake, and women's player Danielle Goyette.

Kariya notched 402 goals and 587 assists for 989 points.

The NHL's all-time leader with 274 power-play goals, Andreychuk was a reliable top forward for 24 seasons.

Selanne's career was more defined by two separate stints with the Ducks, the latter - without Kariya - lasting the last nine seasons of his career. The left winger is one of the greatest in his position, as he posted 1,338 points in 1,639 games played over 23 years in the National Hockey League. What made it worse was that they were decidedly nice-it was hard to hate them, even if you wanted to (Selanne, as the L.A. Times notes, had worked as a kindergarten teacher for three years in his native Finland before he came to the NHL).

Recchi is not yet in the Flyers' Hall of Fame but that oversight might be corrected now. What surely makes this more special for Selanne is who he is going in with.

Anaheim Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne (8) skates a lap following the 3-2 victory against the Colorado Avalanche in the overtime period at Honda Center. He said it was "a total surprise" to be elected and credited his time working at the league level for the honor.

Kariya had his career cut short by injuries but was a point-a-game player. He had 15 20-goal seasons and earned seven All-Star bids. That was also the only season he recorded 90 or more points.

Unfortunately, the cumulative effects of multiple concussions prevented those numbers from being better and forcing his retirement in 2011.

Part of the club's seven-member 2017 class, the Bruins have become a model of success under Jacobs, with continued playoff success and with no greater than a two-year playoff drought with the Jacobs family in charge of the club's operations. He also won the Lady Byng Trophy twice, given to the league's most gentlemanly player.

Goyette played internationally for Canada. He follows in the footsteps of ex-Edmonton Oiler Jari Kurri, with bronze and silver medals for his country in Olympic play.

We'll find out soon if Daniel Alfredsson will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. It was a deserved call, though.

Recchi (fourth year) and Andreychuk (ninth) were long-overdue additions. Friend and former linemate Paul Kariya is headed there, too, and Selanne wanted to be the first to deliver the news.

Dave Andreychuk's wait is over.

"No way", Recchi said on the call he received from McDonald.

Selanne finished 11th all-time in goals. "He got a good bunch of them battling in front of the net on the man advantage, using his 6'4", 225-lb frame. He then spent a season in Toronto and later joined the Lightning where he helped lead the team to a Stanley Cup championship in 2004.
