Five pillars of the modern NHL to be enshrined

The class of 2007 is one stellar group of honorees, perhaps the most talented group to be enshrined on the same night as the NHL has ever seen.

Those in Canada can watch the evenings activities Monday night on the TSN Alternate feed at 7:30 pm ET and 4:30 pm. The regular TSN network will feature highlights of the broadcast Wednesday night at the same times.

The Hockey Hall of Fame has set up an Induction showcase page featuring details of all of this years honorees.

Claiming their place in Hockey History tonight will be:

Mark Messier (Player)
Al MacInnis (Player)
Ron Francis (Player)
Scott Stevens (Player)
Jim Gregory (Builder)

Below is some of the pre-celebration press we've discovered over the last few days.
