Hockey Hall of Fame Induction
Date: Nov 13
Drake has been inducted into the 2017 Class of the Hockey Hall of Fame. He will enter the Hockey Hall of Fame in the builders category, along with fellow 2017 inductees Teemu Selanne, Paul Kariya, Dave Andreychuk, Mark Recchi, Danielle Goyette, and fellow builder Jeremy Jacobs.
It's amazing what can be accomplished when no one cares who gets the credit.
