Lamoriello named to U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame
Lou Lamoriello

Lou Lamoriello, Mike Modano and Eddie Olczyk will be enshrined as the United States Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2012 it was announced today by USA Hockey. The three-member class will be formally installed into the Hall this fall, with a date and location to be announced in the near future.

"What a remarkable class," said Ron DeGregorio, president of USA Hockey. "The positive impact this group has had on our sport is one that will be felt for decades to come."

Under the direction of Lou Lamoriello, the New Jersey Devils are one of the most successful teams in the National Hockey League, as evidenced by five appearances in the Stanley Cup Finals, including titles in 1995, 2000 and 2003.

Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009, the President, General Manager and CEO of the Devils has been with the club since 1987 and has served as general manager for a single franchise longer than any other GM in the league. Lamoriello led the Devils to their first winning season and to the Wales Conference Finals during his first campaign and, under his guidance, the team has advanced to the NHL playoffs in 21 of the last 23 seasons.

Prior to taking his current position, Lamoriello led the Providence College men's ice hockey team as head coach from 1968 until he resigned in 1983 to focus on his duties as athletic director of the college. In his final season as head coach (1982-83), Lamoriello led the Friars to a best-in-the-nation 33-10-0 record and a berth in the Frozen Four for the first time since 1964.

As athletic director, Lamoriello played a central role in the formation of the Hockey East Association and the establishment of an interlocking schedule with the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. He was the first commissioner of the Hockey East Association, a position he held from 1984-87 while also serving as PC's athletic director. Lamoriello also helped establish the first-ever college hockey television package. In 1988, Hockey East named its conference championship trophy in his honor. The Providence, R.I., native has also made his mark on the international stage, serving as general manager of gold-medal winning Team USA at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and for the U.S. entry in the 1998 Olympic Winter Games.

With a professional career that spanned over 21 NHL seasons, Mike Modano is the league's all-time goal-scoring and points leader among American-born players with 561 goals and 1,374 points. Modano also holds records for the most NHL playoff points (145) by an American-born player and games played (1,499) by an American-born forward.

Eddie Olczyk was the third overall pick of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks and enjoyed a 16-year professional career. A member of the 1994 Stanley Cup champion New York Rangers, Olczyk's career was split between six teams, including the Chicago Blackhawks (1984-1987, 1998-2000), Toronto Maple Leafs (1987-1991), Winnipeg Jets (1991-1992, 1995-96), New York Rangers (1992-1995), Los Angeles Kings (1996) and Pittsburgh Penguins (1996-1998). All total, he notched 342 goals and 452 assists for 794 points in 1,031 games.
