TAMPA (FOX 13) - The Tampa Bay Lightning’s popular former captain is now headed for a new honor: The Hockey Hall of Fame. Dave Andreychuk is among the 2017 class announced Monday.
Andreychuk played for several NHL teams through his 26-year career and though only four seasons were with the Lightning, he remains a fan favorite after helping lead the team to their first and only championship in 2004.
The left winger retired from the ice after being waived by the Bolts in 2006, but remains the NHL’s leader in power-play goals.
He currently serves as the Lightning's vice president of corporate & community affairs.
This year’s other inductees include Danielle Goyette, Paul Kariya, Mark Recchi, Teemu Selanne, Clare Drake and Jeremy Jacobs.
