The International Ice Hockey Federation has announced its 2011 Hall of Fame inductees.

Five players will be inducted and one builder will also be honored.

The players being inducted are: Karyn Bye, the fifth woman to be welcomed into the IIHF Hall of Fame and member of Team USA’s 1998 Olympic team; Tord Lundstrom, a stalwart and 200-game veteran for Swedish teams in the 1970s; Bohumil Modry, one of Europe’s best goalies during the 1940s; Ladislav Trojak, the first Sloavak world champion; and Doru Tureanu, a star Romanian forward in the ‘70s.

Modry and Trojak will be inducted posthumously.

The builder is Kalevi Numminen, the first modern Finnish coach who laid the foundation for the country’s successes in the 1980s and ‘90s.

The IIHF also announced Russian Yuri Korolev will be awarded the Paul Loicq Award for “outstanding contributions to the IIHF and international ice hockey.”

Inductions will take place May 15, 2011 in Bratislava, Slovakia during the 75th IIHF World Championship, which runs from April 29 to May 15.
