Retired NHL star Danny Gare and his mother Cathy (above) received customized rings this month at the BC Hockey Hall of Fame’s annual induction ceremony in Penticton.
Danny, a Nelson native, was inducted in 2000, while his father Ernie, a WIHL star and Notre Dame University athletics director, was inducted posthumously in 1998. They are the only father-son duo in the Hall.
Cathy received the ring on her late husband’s behalf.
“It was a nice honour for everybody,” Danny says. “They started it just this year.”
This year’s class included Joe Sakic, Jack McIlhargey, and referee Rob Schick.
