National Hockey League (NHL) Hall of Fame

The Hockey Hall of Fame was established in 1943 and is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Initial plans for the Hall of Fame were for it to reside in Kingston Ontario, however due to delays in construction the actual location was moved to Toronto. The original NHL Hockey Hall of Fame opened on August 26th, 1961 on the Exhibition Place grounds. Bobby Hewitson was the first Curator of the Hall of Fame. In 1992 the Toronto Hockey Hall of Fame was relocated to a former Bank of Montreal location in downtown Toronto.

It is a hall of fame and museum dedicated to the history of ice hockey. Originally, there were two categories for induction, players and builders, and in 1961, a third category for on-ice officials was introduced. In 1988, a "veteran player category" was established in order to "provide a vehicle for players who may have been overlooked and whose chances for election would be limited when placed on the same ballot with contemporary players." Eleven players were inducted into the category, but in 2000 the board of directors eliminated it and those inductees are now considered to be in the player category.

For a person to be inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame, they must be nominated by an elected 18-person selection committee which consists of Hockey Hall of Fame members and media personalities. Each committee member is allowed to nominate one person in each category per year, and candidates must receive the support of 75% of the members of the committee that are present, or a minimum of ten votes.

Nominations must be submitted to the chairman of the board of governors by April 15. The committee then meets in June to vote and a secret ballot is held. In any given year, there can be a maximum of four players, two builders, and one referee or linesman. For a player, referee, or linesman to be nominated, the person must have been retired for a minimum three years. Builders may be "active or inactive". The induction ceremony is held at the current Hall of Fame building.
