Hockey legends Guy Lafleur, Lanny McDonald and Kim St-Pierre have been named to the Order of Hockey in Canada class of 2022.

The Order of Hockey in Canada is used to honor players that had a big impact on the game in the country. All three players are Hockey Hall of Famers, with Lafleur and McDonald both winning Stanley Cups in their lifetime.

The 2022 induction class will join the 2020 and 2021 groups for a ceremony in Niagara Falls this June.

Lafleur is the all-time points leader for the Montreal Canadiens with 1,276 points and five Stanley Cup championships in the 1970s. He also was part of the country's 1976 Canada Cup win and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1988. 

McDonald helped the Calgary Flames win its lone Stanley Cup to date in 1989 and had 1,006 points in 1,111 NHL games as a defenseman. He later was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1992 and was part of that same Canada Cup-winning squad. 

St-Pierre owns the record for most wins (64) and shutouts (29) in Canada's women's national team history, winning three Olympic gilds, five World Championships and two CWHL Clarkson Cups. St-Pierre was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2021.
