Hungarian Ice Hockey Hall of Fame

The Hungarian Ice Hockey Hall of Fame, which honours players, coaches, referees and other individuals who have made important contributions to the sport of hockey in Hungary, was founded and the first members were inducted on 16 April 2011. The awards were given by International Ice Hockey Federation president René Fasel one day prior to the beginning of the 2011 IIHF World Championship Division I, that was held in Budapest, Hungary. A total of 22 prizes were handed over, divided between eleven living legends and as many former stars, who have been deceased and were honoured posthumously.[1]

The memorial of the Hall of Fame members were inaugurated on 24 February 2012 at the City Park Skating Rink, one of the oldest ice rinks in Europe, which renovation finished just two months earlier.[2]
