Ciccarelli, Devellano Elected to Hockey Hall of Fame


Former Red Wing Dino Ciccarelli and longtime Detroit executive Jimmy Devellano were among the 2010 Hockey Hall of Fame class of inductees announced Tuesday.

They join Cammi Granato and Angela James – pioneers in women’s hockey – as well as the late Daryl “Doc” Seaman, a founding owner of the Calgary Flames.

Eric Lindros, Joe Nieuwendyk, Doug Gilmour and Pavel Bure were overlooked in the vote.

Ciccarelli played 19 seasons in the NHL, including four with Detroit, and scored 608 career goals. He retired from the Florida Panthers in 1998-99 after playing 1232 career games.

Devellano was an architect of the New York Islanders dynasty in the early 1980s before being lured to Detroit when Mike Ilitch bought the team. The Red Wings have won four Stanley Cups and made six appearances in the Stanley Cup Finals under his leadership.

The induction ceremony will be held in November.
