Through the madness of “he who shall remain nameless” and the Devils’ prospect camp this series got put in the void for a little bit. I am back to finish this series with the last two members of the 2013 Hockey Hall of Fame Class, Geraldine Heaney and Fred Shero.


Geraldine was born October 1st, 1967 (28 years to the day before a certain writer was born) in Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. She was a long-time Canadian National Hockey Team defenceman for the IIHF World Championships. Team Canada won Gold in 1990, ’92, ’94, ’97, ’99, 2000, ’01). She also won Silver Medal at the 1998 Nagano Olympic Games and Gold at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games. She was inducted into the IIHF Hall of Fame in 2008.

In 125 national games with Team Canada: 27 G, 66 A, 93 PTS, 62 PIM. She still holds national team records at D in world championship games (35), goals (8), assists (28), and points (36).
