Badgers in the US HHOF

The US Hockey Hall of Fame will be releasing their 2009 Class today at 11 AM CDT, with a recording of the media conference call with each of the inductees available online later in the day.

And so I figured this was a good excuse to take a look at the Badgers who are part of the US HHOF. Click on their names to see their HHOF profiles.

Bob Johnson was inducted as a Coach/Administrator in 1991.

His son Mark Johnson was inducted as a player in 2004. He was also inducted as a part of the 1980 Olympic team in 2003.

As part of the 1980 Olympic Team, Bob Suter was also inducted with the team in 2003.

Mike Richter was inducted as a player in 2008.

And while she's wasn't a Badger (not her fault the Badger Women's program didn't exist then), I'll always think of her as a Badger at heart. Cammi Granato was also inducted as a player last year.
