John LeClair's a Hall of Famer

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) _ Former NHL stars John LeClair, Tony Amonte, Tom Barrasso and the
1998 U.S. Olympic Women's Hockey team will be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.

The class also includes the late Frank Zamboni, inventor of the storied ice resurfacing machine.

LeClair was the first American-born player with three-straight 50-goal seasons from 1995 to 1998. Amonte scored the winning goal against Canada in the deciding game of the first World Cup of Hockey in 1996 and Barrasso won two Stanley Cups as a goalie for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 1998 U.S. Olympic Women's team won the gold medal at the Winter Games in Nagano, Japan.
