Today the American Hockey League announced that four former players have been named to the Hall of Fame Class of 2012.
The inductees are: Joe Crozier, Jack Gordon, John Stevens and Zellio Toppazzini.
“These four individuals enjoyed significant careers and are legendary figures in the rich history of the American Hockey League,” said David Andrews, AHL President and Chief Executive Officer.” The AHL Board of Governors is pleased to support the selection committee’s recommendation for their induction into the American Hockey League Hall of Fame.”
Certainly this is an impressive list of inductees, though I am only familiar with John Stevens’ career both as a coach and player. The addition of these four members brings the AHL Hall of Fame list to 30 in total.
Though Milwaukee has only existed as an AHL franchise since 2001, I am curious to think about which former or current Admirals might eventually belong on this list. My two initial Milwaukee inductees would be Tony Hrkac and Darren Haydar.
So Roundtable, What do think? Which former or current Admirals would you select for the AHL Hall of Fame and why?
