1. Henrik Sedin
Anyone who wins the Hart Trophy basically is a lock for the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Is Henrik the exception?

Definitely not.

Henrik Sedin, who as of this writing is the all-time leading scorer for the Vancouver Canucks and in addition to his Hart Trophy is a two time First Team All Star and a three time Assists leader in the NHL.  Easily one of the most gifted playmakers of his day, Sedin also has an Olympic Gold under his belt, another accolade that should get him inducted.

Frankly, there should be no way that he needs that Gold to get him inducted anyway but his extensive international skills puts him well over the top.

  • Position: Center

    World Hockey Championship Gold Medal (Sweden, 2013)
