The Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame inducted its inaugural class on Saturday in Swift Current. That first class included 10 players (Sid Abel, Doug Bentley, Max Bentley, Johnny Bower, Glenn Hall, Gordie Howe, Elmer Lach, Metro Prystai, Fred Sasakamoose and Bryan Trottier), one official (Dennis Pottage), five builders (Ed Chynoweth, Bill Hunter, Gordon Juckes, Athol Murray and Darryl Seaman), one grassroots contributor (Bill Ford) and five teams (1955-64 Semans Wheat Kings, 1974 Regina Pats, 1982-83 U of Saskatchewan Huskies, 1984-85 Prince Albert Raiders and 1988-89 Swift Current Broncos). . . . The Hall of Fame is to be located in the Credit Union iplex, with displays expected to be open to the public in late August or early September. . . . Some folks were given a sneak peek on the weekend. Here’s what Trottier told the Southwest Booster: “One word, spectacular. I think they totally overwhelmed me and I think they are overwhelming a lot of people that are going in there. Everyone is saying it is a great, great job. I think it is unique in style, too, with all the hockey sticks hanging around. They did a great job with the displays. The lighting in there is really special. A lot of people will hopefully come through and really enjoy it for a lot of years."
