Mark Howe’s fitting tribute to his father Gordie

Nov 14, 2011, 10:15 PM EDT

Mark Howe lived in the shadow of his famous father Gordie … until he turned out to be an excellent professional in his own right. His inclusion in the Hockey Hall of Fame should make that perfectly clear.

That doesn’t mean Mark didn’t appreciate the hockey legend’s presence in his life and he made that clear in his speech, as he donned Gordie’s iconic Detroit Red Wings number nine jersey. (View his full speech here.)

That was arguably the most memorable moment of the night, but you might want to check out the other three inductees’ speeches. Here they are, in alphabetical order:

Ed Belfour:

Doug Gilmour:
