Mark Recchi misses out on Hall of Fame this year

Mark Recchi is on the outside looking in.

The former NHLer was not elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2015 on Monday.

A three-time Stanley Cup champion, Recchi scored 577 goals and registered 1,533 points (12th all-time) in 1,652 games during his 22-year career.

The former players elected to the Hall include: Detroit Red Wings’ Nicklas Lidstrom and Sergei Fedorov, and Buffalo Sabres’ Phil Housley and Chris Pronger. Bill Hay and Peter Karmanos were elected in the builder category, while Angela Ruggiero earned entrance in the women’s category.

Recchi won a Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins (1991), Carolina Hurricanes (2006) and the Boston Bruins in 2011. He retired at age 42 after the 2010-2011 championship season with the Bruins.

Recchi should eventually get elected to the Hall, but now he'll have to wait at least another year.
