Herb Brooks
The architect of the “Miracle on Ice”, Herb Brooks assembled and coached the United States to the impossible: a Gold Medal in the 1980 Winter Olympics which included a semi-final victory over the most powerful International Team in Hockey, The Soviet Union. That alone is worth enshrinement to the Hockey Hall of Fame, but Brooks did have a decent run as the Head Coach of the New York Rangers and coached the Americans to a Silver Medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics. Herb Brooks was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame posthumously in 2006.
