Pavel Bure to be inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame
Congrats to Pavel! I guess enough time has passed. Even I wish him well even though for years I thought of him as the Vince Carter of the Canucks. He deserves the recognition.
TORONTO — Former Vancouver Canucks star Pavel Bure, Swedish icon Mats Sundin and Canadians Joe Sakic and Adam Oates were elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame on Tuesday in voting by the selection committee.
The four former NHL legends will be inducted into the sporting shrine on Nov. 12 in a ceremony at the Hall of Fame in Toronto.
Bure joined the Vancouver Canucks in 1991 and won NHL Rookie of the Year honors. The six-time NHL All-Star won the league scoring title in 2000 and 2001 while with Florida and finished his career with the New York Rangers in 2003.
"It's a tremendous honour to be selected," Bure said. "Growing up I never even thought I would be able to play in the NHL, much less make it into the Hockey Hall of Fame."
