Longtime NHL stars Tony Amonte, Tom Barrasso and John LeClair,  the 1998 women's Olympic team and the late Frank Zamboni are headed to the United States Hockey Hall of Fame.

Amonte scored the winning goal late in the third period against Canada in the deciding game of the inaugural World Cup of Hockey in 1996. In 1,174 games over 15 years in the NHL, he recorded 416 goals and 484 assists.

Barrasso won back-to-back Stanley Cup championships with the Pittsburgh Penguins, and won 369 games in the regular season and 61 more in the playoffs.

LeClair, the first American-born player to record three consecutive 50-goal seasons in the NHL, finished his career with 406 goals and 413 assists in 967 games.

The '98 women's hockey team won gold at the Nagano Olympics, beating Canada 3-1 in the gold-medal game.

Zamboni, who originally owned a plant for manufacturing block ice, patented the world's first self-propelled ice resurfacing machine in 1949. They have since become standard at rinks around the world.
