2020 & 2021 Enshrinement Celebration

A Televised Tribute to Greatness

In lieu of two in-person induction ceremonies postponed due to Covid restrictions, the Hall of Fame took on the considerable task in 2021 of producing a safely pre-recorded program to pay proper tribute to our Classes of 2020 & 2021. The result was a 1½-hour TV special, which premiered on Rhode Island’s Public Service station, WSBE-TV36, in August of 2021.

Hosted by Dale Arnold, the broadcast features videos of each inductee’s hockey journey and acceptance speeches delivered and recorded from venues all over the country that are associated with each honoree’s respective career. Also featured are congratulatory messages from former honorees, as well as some of hockey’s most respected and well-known personalities.

Over the months leading up to the broadcast, mobile-phone videos were collected from the family, friends and fans of each inductee to enable them to share in the festivities as part of a custom audience cheering the induction of their respective honoree.
