Olczyk elected to U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame

Eddie Olczyk, who started his playing career with the Chicago Blackhawks and is currently the color analyst for the team, was elected to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame on Wednesday afternoon.

Its a very proud day for me and my family, Olczyk said on the conference call announcing his induction today. Im humbled, honored and thankful to represent our game in the great United States.

I thank everybody because this induction is about the people that helped me along the way, both on and off the ice.

Olczyk tallied 342 goals and 794 games during his NHL career, which included stints with the Blackhawks, Toronto Maple Leafs, Winnipeg Jets, New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins and the Los Angeles Kings.
