AB: This is a comprehensive directory to every player elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame from its inception in 1880 to the publication of this guide in 1988. For each inductee, this guide provides a photo and brief biography. As well, this resource includes a sidebar that tracks the evolution of the professional hockey associations in North America, with a brief mention of the professional Edmonton and Calgary teams. Of special note are four members of the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. John Bucyk was inducted in 1981 after an impressive 25 year career, winning two Stanley Cups with the Boston Bruins (p.129). Neil Colville, inducted in 1967, started playing hockey in Edmonton before going on to play, captain and coach with the New York Rangers (p.70). William Gadsby battled polio in 1952 without interruption to his game and was inducted in 1982 for his many accomplishments (p.100). Norm Ullman played professionally for nearly 22 years before being inducted in 1998 (p. 126).
