After learning in June 2020 of his selection for induction in the Hockey Hall of Fame, Jarome Iginla has waited nearly 17 months.
He and the other five members of the Class of 2020 — Doug Wilson, Kim St-Pierre, Kevin Lowe, Marian Hossa and Ken Holland — finally will be inducted in the pandemic-delayed ceremony in Toronto Monday.
There will be no Class of 2021.
“Whenever it was going to happen, I was thrilled,” Iginla said Friday as the several days of Hall of Fame festivities began with the ring ceremony. “It’s such an honor.”
