Kariya was in his fifth year of eligibility for the Hall of Fame, but had not been selected until now, likely due to injuries shortening his career.  He logged a total of 989 points and averaged one point per contest he played.  Kariya earned the Lady Byng Trophy twice and won gold with Canada in the Olympics during 2002 and took home the Hobey Baker award during his time at UMaine, also guiding the Black Bears to a National Championship in 1993.
