Lou Lamoriello, New Jersey's longtime general manager, who has led the Devils to three Stanley Cup titles and five Eastern Conference crowns, was named Wednesday to this year's induction class of the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.
Former players Mike Modano, who won a Stanley Cup with the Dallas Stars, and Eddie Olczyk, who won one with the New York Rangers, are also a part of the class that will be enshrined in the fall.
Since Lamoriello took over in 1987, the Devils have secured nine division titles and won the Cup in 1995, 2000, and 2003.
Modano, who lost the Cup finals to New Jersey in 2000 as a member of the Stars, played in 21 NHL seasons. He finished with 561 goals and 1,374 points, and holds the record for most post-season points (145) by an American. His Stars defeated Buffalo in the 1999 Cup finals.
Olczyk was the third overall pick of the 1984 draft and played for 16 years with the Blackhawks, Maple Leafs, Jets, Rangers, Kings and Penguins. He finished with 342 goals and 794 points in 1,031 games. His Rangers defeated Vancouver in 1994 to win the Cup.
