Former Detroit Red Wing Mark Howe was named to the Hockey Hall Of Fame Today. Along with Howe, Ed Belfour, Doug Gilmour and Joe Nieuwendyk were also elected to the hall.

Howe finished a 16-year career in the NHL in 1995 with 742 points in 929 games with the Hartford Whalers, Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings.

Howe, whose father is Gordie Howe, was a three-time First-team NHL All-Star and played in four All-Star Games. He had a career-high 24 goals and 82 points in 1985-86 with the Flyers.

“I was elated to have this dream come true given that it is a tremendous honor just to have my name mentioned with the upper echelon of hockey,” said Howe, who has been eligible for induction since 1998. “To actually have my name in the Hall of Fame with my Dad will mean so much to my family.”
