COLORADO SPRINGS, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- Cammi Granato, who helped the U.S. women to the 1998 Olympic gold medal, will be the first woman inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.
Granato was a 15-year veteran of the U.S. women's national team. She is the national team's all-time leading scorer with 343 points -- 186 goals and 157 assists -- over 205 games.
Hull, third on the all-time NHL scoring list with 741 goals, was on two Stanley Cup-winning teams during his 20-year NHL career.
Leetch, a native Texan, was an 11-time all-star during his 18 years in the NHL. A two-time Norris Trophy winner, he is one of seven defensemen to total more than 1,000 points (1,028) over his career.
Richter played his entire 14-year career in New York and was a teammate of Leetch's in 1993-94 when the Rangers won their first Stanley Cup since 1940. He ranks first in team history with 301 wins in 666 games and was selected to three all-star teams.
