Teammates Forever Hall of Honor

About the Teammates Forever Hall of Honor

You have a unique opportunity to create a lasting tribute to honor a personal hero from your hockey experience on the US Hockey Hall of Fame Museum website.

You probably know someone who is worthy. A person you think of right away when you start telling an inspirational story. They’re your go-to good example. A person that maybe didn’t score the most goals, or make the most saves, but never gave up, or gave in. They gave 110%. They put the team first, let others have their time to shine, but were illuminated by their character, positivity and by actions that spoke louder than words. They taught you lessons beyond the game. They touched your life deeply on—and off the ice in a way that you can’t thank them enough for.

Maybe you shared ice in youth hockey, juniors, college, the NHL, PWHL, or every winter for pond hockey. No matter what though, they made the game better, and your shared experience will solidify you as teammates forever. Now you have the opportunity to pass it on.

To remember them, to honor them, and to enshrine them in the Teammates Forever Hall of Honor on the United States Hockey Hall of Fame Museum website. A Teammates Forever Hall of Honor status means that this person was a leader, unique and inspirational to their team and its members. This designation will endure for a lifetime —“forever.”

In their name, Teammates Forever Hall of Honor funds will go toward supporting much needed resources to hockey players who need mental health support and programs, through the non-profit organization, The Ranch—Teammates for Life. You’ll also be providing support that preserves the legacy of the United States Hockey Hall of Fame Museum for future generations to enjoy.

Imagine the excitement of telling friends and families that this special person has been inducted into the Teammates Forever Honor Hall on the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Museum website!


Being on a team requires personal sacrifice, dedication, and hard work from every member to achieve the team’s goals. This shared experience creates an enduring bond like no other. In honor of that bond, we have established the Teammates Forever Hall of Honor through a partnership between the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Museum and The Ranch – Teammates for Life. Our shared mission is to provide dignity and respect to our hockey heroes on and off ice, preserving their lasting-legacy, and providing inspiration to the next generation of players.
