(TORONTO) -- The Hockey Hall of Fame has announced its 2016 inductees, and Eric Lindros finally made the cut.
The announcement Monday revealed that players Lindros, Sergei Makarov, Rogie Vachon, and the late Pat Quinn in the builders category would be inducted after a vote from the selection committee in Toronto.
Lindros, who had been eligible for induction for the past six years, was a superstar for the Philadelphia Flyers. He won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL's MVP for the regular season in 1994-1995 and suffered a number of injures including multiple concussions.
"The Hockey Hall of Fame is proud to welcome these four hockey legends as Honoured Members," Hockey Hall of Fame chairman John Davidson said in a statement. "Their contributions to the game of hockey are well documented and their election to the Hockey Hall of Fame is richly deserved."
