COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Tickets for the 2012 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner are on sale beginning today.
The U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2012, which includes Lou Lamoriello, Mike Modano and Eddie Olczyk, will be formally enshrined in the Lone Star State on Monday, Oct. 15. It marks the first time ever that Texas will host the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & Dinner.
"We're excited to bring the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Induction to Dallas," said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey. "With the limited capacity for the event, we encourage those interested in attending to act early."
The 40th annual induction ceremony and dinner will be staged on the ice at Plaza of the Americas in Dallas, with the adjacent Dallas Marriott City Center serving as the host hotel.
