Goaltender Belfour heads up list of inductees to Hall of Fame

  • Print

Five athletes, two builders and two teams make up the Class of 2012 going into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame, the organization announced Tuesday.

 Former NHL goaltender Ed Belfour heads up the list of inductees. The one-time Carman high school netminder won a Stanley Cup with the Dallas Stars in 1999 and was awarded the Vezina Trophy (for the league’s top goaltender) twice throughout his illustrious NHL career.

 Joining Belfour are former fastball standout Sandy Maskiw (Newsham), a former Olympian and a key member of the Smitty’s team dynasty from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s; Kelly Hand, a Carman-native who won five national sailing titles, a world championship, and a Pan Am gold (1999) to go along with two appearances at the Summer Olympics (2000 and 2004); and Michael Ireland, a five-time Olympian in the sport of skeedskating.

 Rounding out the athlete category is Harry Langford, a former Daniel MacIntyre student who played nine seasons with the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL (1950-58).

 Grant Stradbrook and Morris Glimcher are recognized for their efforts building sport in Manitoba. Stradbrook was one of the founding coaches at the Legion Athletic Camp, while Glimcher, the executive director of the Manitoba High School Athletics Association, continues to be the driving force behind sport at the high school level in the province.

 The two teams named to the hall are the Winnipeg Wesmen women’s basketball team (1992-95) and the Manitoba Bisons men’s volleyball squad (1978 and 1980).

 All nine inductees will be celebrated at the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame Induction Dinner at the Victoria Inn later this year (Nov. 3).
