New Sabres Hall of Famers named

By Eileen Buckley

Buffalo, NY – The Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame Selection Committee announced the induction of Rick Jeanneret and Dale Hawerchuk into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame.

Jeanneret is the longest-tenured play-by-play announcer in NHL history.

Hawerchuk is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Both were selected based on their outstanding contributions to the sport of hockey and the Buffalo Sabres organization.

The pair will officially be inducted as the 36th and 37th members of the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame during a ceremony before the team's game against the Winnipeg Jets on November 8, 2011.
