The Hat Trick is a bit late in this post but better late than never. Congratulations to Steve Yzerman, former Captain of the Detroit Red Wings (and the Hat Trick's favorite player!) on his selection to the 2009 NHL Hall of Fame Class. This is a well-deserved honor after Yzerman's amazing career, all with the Red Wings, that brought Detroit back to hockey greatness after years as a cellar dweller. Yzerman is joined in the 2009 Hall of Fame Class by Brett Hull, Luc Robitaille and Brian Leetch...ironically Hull and Robitaille were members of the 2002 Red Wings that won the Stanley Cup, Stevie Y's last cup as a player (he won another Stanley Cup in 2008 as a member of the Red Wings management).
Once again, congratulations Steve Yzerman...you have more than earned this honor!
