The United States Hockey Hall of Fame added five new members to its esteemed group on Monday with the induction of the 2013 class. Chief among the class members are a pair of longtime NHL players in Doug Weight and Bill Guerin. Joining them with their inductions were Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr., Women's National Team star Cindy Curley and long-time college coach Ron Mason. USA Today writer Kevin Allen was also honored with the Lester Patrick Award. Weight had a long and successful NHL career that spanned 19 seasons and took him to six different teams in 1,238 career games. He had the best years of his career in Edmonton, posting a career-high 104 points in 1995-96 with the Oilers. In total he finished with 1,033 points throughout his career with 278 goals and 755 assists. He finished his career with the Islanders, wearing the captain's C on his chest. Weight won a Stanley Cup in his career in 2005-06 with the Canes and represented the USA numerous times, including three times in the Olympics. Guerin had a somewhat similar career to Weight in that it playing for seven teams over his 18-year career. The two players actually overlapped in both Edmonton and with the Islanders in their careers. Guerin was more of a goal-scorer, finishing his 1,263-game career with 429 goals and 427 assists. Guerin was on two Cup-winning teams, with the Devils in 1994-95 and the Penguins in 2008-09. Guerin also wore Team USA's colors three times in the Olympics and a couple more times in the World Championships. Neither player is in the Hockey Hall of Fame, at least yet, but they were clearly shoo-ins for the US Hockey Hall. Curley had one of the most amazing tournament runs you'll ever see when she recorded 11 goals and 12 assists in the 1990 Women's World Championship ... in just five games. She has remained involved with USA Hockey and more since retiring.
