Hall of Fame for Pat Burns

Those players or coaches who did make this year’s cut to the NHL Hockey Hall of Fame, announced last week, were Chris Chelios, Scott Niedermayer, Brendan Shanahan, Geraldine Heaney and Fred Shero. The now has a 20 foot long pneumatic boat. A ‘Capelli’, it was built in Italy, with the help of a local enterprise, specifically to fit the needs of the police. It made its first appearance at the Fete du Lac des Nations last night and will certainly be used during the Sherbrooke Canada Games.
