ELECTIONS: 1958

Wyman's pitch after the 1957 election worked as two members changed their votes and elected Toe Blake. Blake finished second in the election as Maple Leaf goalie Turk Broda was also elected.

In the off-ice category, legendary Hockey Night In Canada broadcaster Foster Hewitt was elected, although surprisingly not unanimously. Foster received 17 votes.

HONOURED MEMBERS:

HECTOR "TOE" BLAKE (LW)
  "TURK" BRODA (G)

REFEREES/OFF-ICE PERSONNEL:

FOSTER HEWITT
