Former Devils Scott Niedermayer and Brendan Shanahan on Tuesday were elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame's Class of 2013, the Hockey Hall of Fame announced.

Chris Chelios and Geraldine Heaney were also announced as inductees in the Player Category. Fred Shero was elected to the Builder Category.

Niedermayer, 39, was drafted third overall by the Devils in 1991 and went on to play 13 seasons in New Jersey from 1991 to 2004, winning Stanley Cups in the 1995, 2000 and 2003 seasons.    

In 2005, he signed as a free agent with the Anaheim Mighty Ducks where he was a two-time first team All-Star during his six seasons, as well as being a key part of their 2007 Stanley Cup winning team. He also won the Conn Smythe Trophy as Playoff MVP that season.

On the international front, Scott also won gold at the World Junior Championship in 1991, gold at the World Championship in 2004, and gold at two Olympic Games in 2002 and 2010.

The native of Cranbrook, B.C., collected 172 goals and 568 assists for 740 points in 1,263 career games.

“My goal was always just to make the National Hockey League,” Niedermayer said. “Joining people in the Hall of Fame that I’ve always looked up to is a tremendous thrill.”

Shanahan, 44, was selected second overall by New Jersey in 1987 and spent his first four seasons with the Devils.

He signed with St. Louis as a free agent in 1991 and had back-to-back 50 goal seasons in 1992-93 and 1993-94. He went on to play two seasons in Hartford before being traded to the Detroit Red Wings in 1996, where he played nine seasons winning the Stanley Cup on three occasions (1997, 1998 and 2002). He played his final NHL season – 2008-09 – with the Devils.

Representing Canada internationally on numerous occasions, he was a member of Canada’s 2002 gold medal winning team. Shanahan amassed 656 goals and 698 assists for 1,354 points in 1,524 career games from 1987-88 to 2008-09.

“I’ve always been fortunate to have great teammates and coaches throughout my career,” said Shanahan.  “At every level I have tried to learn and my key to success was having people around me that helped me improve my game.”
