The fiery goaltender known as “The Eagle” won the 1991 Calder Trophy and went on to become a two-time Vezina Trophy-winner who posted 484 wins — third all-time — including 76 shutouts during his 17-year career. The Hall of Fame goalie, who backstopped the Dallas Stars to a Stanley Cup victory in 1999, turned 50 years old today. (Richard Mackson/SI)

Three-time Vezina Trophy winner and Hall of Fame goalie Glenn Hall, seen here between the pipes for the Chicago Blackhawks in 1964, turned 85 years old on Oct. 3, 2016. For seven complete seasons—two with Detroit and five with Chicago—the maskless Hall, who became known as Mr. Goalie, never missed a start. His 502 consecutive games in goal is perhaps the safest record in all of sports. (Tony Triolo)

Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom plays the puck against the Vancouver Canucks on Jan. 17, 2008 at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. 2015 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees were announced on Monday, with Lidstrom headlining the seven people making up the class. Lidstrom won the Norris Trophy seven times over his 20-year-career, which was entirely spent with Detroit. The 12-time All-Star won the Stanley Cup four times and recorded 1,142 career points. (David E. Klutho for SI)
