IIHF names inductees for the Hall of Fame

The International Ice Hockey Federation has named the 2008 Hall of Fame inductees, and the list includes a new group of people: women.

For the first time in history, women will be inducted into the IIHF HOF. It's about time.

The list of players to be honoured in May at the World Championships include:

Angela James of Thornhill, Ontario

Geraldine Heaney of Weston, Ontario

and Cammi Granato of Downers Grove, Illinois.

Oh, and someone named Mario Lemieux will be honoured as well. I hear he was a pretty good hockey player.
