MacInnis Selected for Hockey Hall of Fame
Al MacInnis spent 10 seasons with the Blues after coming to St. Louis from Calgary in 1994.


ST. LOUIS – The Hockey Hall of Fame announced today that former Blues defenseman Al MacInnis has been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. MacInnis becomes the 13th player who donned the Bluenote to enter the Hall. The other players included in this year’s group include Mark Messier, Ron Francis and former Blues captain Scott Stevens.

“It’s a privilege to be entering the Hall of Fame with this special group of inductees from this year,” said MacInnis. “I would like to thank my family for their sacrifice through my 23-year career and I would like to thank the St. Louis Blues and the Calgary Flames for all of the support they have given me throughout my career.”

MacInnis currently ranks third all-time among NHL defensemen in goals (340), assists (934) and points (1,274), and ranks seventh with 1,416 games played. He also ranks 13th all-time among NHL players in assists, 31st in points and 21st in games played.

“We would like to congratulate Al on this well-deserved honor of being selected to the Hockey Hall of Fame,” said Blues President of Hockey Operations John Davidson. “We’re fortunate to have a true class act like Al as a part of the Blues family.”

The Port Hood, Nova Scotia native was drafted by Calgary as their first choice, 15th overall, in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft and made his NHL debut with the Flames on December 30, 1981 vs. the Boston Bruins.

MacInnis spent 13 seasons with Calgary (1981-94), appearing in two Stanley Cup Finals (1986 and 1989) and capturing the Stanley Cup Championship in 1989 along with the Conn Smythe Trophy as the postseason’s most valuable player. He also appeared in six NHL All-Star Games as a member of the Flames, and was named to the NHL’s First All-Star Team twice (1990 and 1991) along with being named to the Second All-Star Team three times (1987, 1989 and 1994) while in Calgary.

MacInnis currently ranks first in Flames franchise history with 803 games played and 609 assists, and he ranks second with 822 points.

After spending over a decade with Calgary, the Blues acquired MacInnis on July 4, 1994. He spent 10 seasons in St. Louis, shattering franchise records for defensemen. MacInnis played in 613 games with the Blues, ranking first all-time among Blues defensemen in goals (127), assists (325) and points (452).

While in St. Louis, he was selected to appear in seven NHL All-Star Games, was named to the NHL’s First All-Star Team twice (1999 and 2003) and won his first James Norris Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman in 1999. During his final season in 2003-04, MacInnis played just three games for the Blues after suffering a season-ending eye injury.
