100 Greatest NHL Players of All Time
League announced remaining 67 legends at gala event in Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES -- The 67 remaining members of the 100 Greatest NHL Players were unveiled Friday night at NHL100 presented by GEICO.
The 67, who played predominantly from 1967-present, were introduced during the event at the Microsoft Theatre.
The first 33 members, who played predominantly during the NHL's first half century, from 1917-1966, were named on Jan. 1 at the Centennial Classic in Toronto.
Canadians are justly proud of their bringing ice hockey - one of the most tremendous games to the whole world. Overseas it was already played in the last century but began entering Europe step by step, too. The first European Championship took place in 1910. During that time Canadian (ice) hockey was a rival to bandy hockey and definitely took the lead after the Olympic Games in Chamonix in 1924.
