Toronto, ON, Canada (4E Sports) - Two of the most talented European-born players -- goaltender Dominik Hasek of the Czech Republic and Swedish center Peter Forsberg - to see action in the NHL lead the Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2014, which was announced Monday.

Aside from Hasek and Forsberg, American center Mike Modano, defenseman Rob Blake, coach Pat Burns and referee Bill McCreary were also selected to this year's list of inductees.

The inductees were chosen by an 18-person committee this past weekend in Toronto. The 2014 Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place Nov. 17.

"When we go through the meetings, we make it very clear that is the Hockey Hall of Fame. It is a world-renowned Hall of Fame," said Columbus Blue Jackets president John Davidson, who is chairman of the selection committee.

"This tells me our game is growing worldwide and our game is being recognized all over the world for the great game that it is. When we have a class like this that is coming into the Hall, I think it says a lot about our game and how worldwide it really is," he added.

Also being honored are USA Today hockey reporter Kevin Allen, the winner of the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for excellence in hockey journalism, and Chicago Blackhawks play-by-play announcer Pat Foley, who received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for broadcasting.

Hasek won the Vezina Trophy six times in his 16-year NHL career, which is tied for the second-most of all time behind Jacques Plante. He's also the only goaltender to win the Hart Trophy more than once, earning League MVP honors in 1996-97 ... MORE
