Former San Jose Sharks netminder Mike Vernon is headed to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Vernon, along with Henrik Lundqvist, Tom Barrasso, Pierre Turgeon, and Caroline Ouellette, received their “calls from the Hall” today. Ken Hitchcock and Pierre Lacroix were admitted to the Hall of Fame as Builders.

1997 Conn Smythe Trophy winner Vernon was traded the following season from the Detroit Red Wings to San Jose where he would help the Sharks to back-to-back playoff appearances. He would eventually be traded midway through the 1999-2000 season to the Florida Panthers.

Vernon is best remembered as a Calgary Flames legend, where he is second in games played and wins behind another ex-Sharks, Miikka Kiprusoff. Through his career with four different franchises, Vernon was 385-273-92 with a .890 Save Percentage and 2.98 Goals Against Average. He hoisted the Stanley Cup twice, in 1989 with the Flames and in 1997 with the Wings.
