Grand Falls-Windsor, NL- the Newfoundland and Labrador Hockey Hall of Fame will be welcoming nine new members to the Provincial Hall in Corner Brook, when Hockey NL holds their Annual Induction Ceremony at the Corner Brook Civic Centre on Saturday, November 5, 2022.

Hall of Fame Selection Committee Chair, Jack Lee of Gould’s, announced that among those being bestowed the honour for their dedication to the sport are Brian Casey of Grand Falls-Windsor, Steve Cleary of St. John’s, and Kirby Dumaresque of Forteau, Labrador, all in the Player Category; Jack Casey of St. John’s, Paul Glavine of Grand Falls-Windsor and Joe Lane of Port aux Basques in the Builder Category; Dennis Laing of Gander and Rebecca Russell of St. John’s in the Athlete-Builder Category, and Robin Short of St. John’s in the Media Category.

Brian Casey is being recognized for his long career playing professional hockey; primarily in Europe, where he helped lead teams to championships in both the Slovakian Elite League, and the Danish Elite League. While in Europe, he was also a member of two Canadian national teams that captured the prestigious Spengler Cup.

Jack Casey has been the driving force behind both the Caps Minor Hockey Association, and the St. John’s Caps senior hockey club. In his role with youth hockey, he was a part of volunteer organizations that attracted a number of national and international events to St. John’s, including the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, the Canadian World Junior Training Camp, the Four Nations Cup, and the National Midget Telus Cup.

Steve Cleary played 13 seasons of senior hockey with the Flatrock Flyers and the Conception Bay Cee Bee Stars, where he was a six-time Avalon East League Defenceman of the Year, and a four-time Herder Memorial Trophy champion.

Kirby Dumaresque was a champion at multiple levels of hockey in this province, and beyond. In addition to being a part of teams that twice won St. John’s Junior Hockey League and Atlantic Junior B championships, Dumaresque also helped lead teams in St. John’s and Flatrock to four Herder Memorial Trophy titles.

Paul Glavine was both president and assistant coach with the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts; helping build a senior hockey team that would go on to play in four Allan Cup Canadian senior hockey semi-final games — eventually winning the Canadian championship in 2017; one of just three teams in the history of Newfoundland and Labrador to capture an Allan Cup.

Dennis Laing played his entire senior-hockey career in his hometown of Gander, where he helped the Flyers win the Herder Trophy in 1980. Throughout his seven years with the Flyers, he amassed a total of 146 points in as many games; the point-a-game pace ranking him 16th overall among all defencemen in Newfoundland Senior Hockey League history.

Joe Lane has been a jack-of-all-trades for the sport of hockey in Port aux Basques for over 40 years. Throughout his career, he’s spent time as a coach, an official, and an executive member at every level of the game, from minor through junior and senior, and into the female division. Along the way, he’s collected an assortment of awards and honours, including Hockey NL’s Brian Wakelin Award as Provincial Executive of the Year.

Rebecca Russell first made a name for herself in the United States as a member of the St. Lawrence Saints NCAA Division One women’s hockey team, where she racked up a number of scoring records before moving on to spend five seasons in the pro ranks with the Calgary Oval Extreme in the Female Professional Hockey League. Upon retirement, she returned to her home province, and began coaching. In 2018, while coaching the Clarenville Caribous, she made provincial hockey history by becoming the first female head coach to lead a team to a Herder Trophy championship.

Robin Short covered sports for The Telegram newspaper for 36 years; the last three decades as the paper’s Sports Editor. During that time, he helped tell the stories of some of this province’s greatest hockey history, from countless senior hockey league seasons through to the arrival of professional and major junior hockey to St. John’s. He was regarded as among the best of the best in minor-hockey coverage, culminating with him being honoured with the American Hockey League’s Ellery Award for excellence in journalism.

The Newfoundland and Labrador Hockey Hall of Fame was established in 1994 to recognize, honor and pay tribute to all individuals on the basis of playing ability, sportsmanship, and character and who have achieved extraordinary distinction in hockey whether that distinction be achieved in amateur and/or professional hockey.

The Hall of Fame has been located on the upper level of the Corner Brook Civic Centre since 2000 and is home to 206 inductees
