Four outstanding athletes are inducted this year; Al MacInnis the Stanley Cup and Conn Smythe winning defenseman of the St. Louis Blues, Don Brien who was named to the Canadian Olympic Paddling Team three times, Carroll Morgan the top rated boxer on the 1972 Canadian Olympic Team, and Peter Corkum the multi-sport athlete who excelled in hockey, football, and curling.

In the builder category, three new inductees are added; Founder of the Nova Scotia Blind Sports Association David Fraser, radio personality and promoter of Nova Scotia sports Arnie Patterson, and ‘Mr. Lacrosse’ Wayne Finck. The 1960-1961 Amherst Ramblers Hockey Team (Allen Cup Eastern Canadian Finalists) are also inducted into the Hall of Fame this year.

The 2008 Induction Awards Ceremonies are scheduled for Friday October 17th at the World Trade and Convention Centre in Halifax, when the new inductees will be enshrined. Host for the evening is CBC’s Bruce Rainne.

Al MacInnis is a hockey legend. His long list of achievements throughout his junior and professional hockey career make him one of the best defenseman in the history of the National Hockey League. In 1981, Al was drafted to the Calgary Flames and a year later won the Memorial Cup with the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL.

In 1983 he was rewarded the Max Kaminsky Trophy as the most outstanding defenseman in the Ontario Hockey League. His NHL career started off strong and he participated in the NHL All-Star Game in 1985 at just 21 years of age (he went on to play in 14 more All-Star Games throughout his career). During the 1986 NHL Playoffs he led the league in assists and in 1989 won the most prized possession in hockey, the Stanley Cup, with the Calgary Flames. That year he was also awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy in recognition of his outstanding performance during the Playoffs (31 points in 22 games making him the first NHL defenseman to record more points than anyone else).

Al has also represented Canada as part of the 1990 World Championships, 1991 Canada Cup Championships in which Canada won gold, 1998 Winter Olympic Team, and the 2002 Gold Medal Olympic Team (Al was the first Nova Scotian to win gold at a Winter Olympics). The St. Louis Blues retired Al’s Jersey in 2006 and he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2007. Al has also done a lot for his local community of Port Hood by contributing time and money to the renovations of the local rink.
