The Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2024 was announced earlier today with several legends making the cut, but Alexander Mogilny once again being omitted.

One day after the Florida Panthers were crowned as NHL champions, the NHL named their newest class of Hockey Hall of Famers. Making the cut are former players in Jeremy Roenick, Pavel Datsyuk, Shea Weber, female players in Natalie Darwitz and Kristy Wendell-Pohl, and builders in David Poile and Colin Campbell.
One name that was omitted yet again was Russian superstar, Alexander Mogilny. Having retired after the 2006-07 season, Mogilny has been eligible for the Hockey Hall of Fame for several years now but has surprisingly not made the cut each and every time. Seen as a pioneer for his bold escape from the Soviet Union, Mogilny has done more than enough to earn his stripes and be enshrined into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
A veteran of 990 games played across 16 seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, Vancouver Canucks, New Jersey Devils, and Toronto Maple Leafs, Mogilny accumulated 473 goals and 1,032 points while also taking home the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy in 2002-03 as a member of the Maple Leafs. He scored more than 30 goals in a season 8 times and scored more than 100 points twice, including a career-high 76 goals and 127 points in 1992-93 with the Sabres.
Internationally he scored 22 goals and 40 points in 25 games at the junior level, including a ridiculous 8 goals and 18 points in just 7 games during the 1988 World Junior Championships for the Soviet Union. He also added 14 points in 21 games at the senior level with his best tournament also coming in 1988 during the Olympic Games.
Mogilny is a member of the Triple Gold Club, he won the Stanley Cup in 2000 with the Devils, has 6 All-Star selections, has 2 NHL second All-Star team selections, and is even inducted into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame after scoring 211 goals and 444 points in 381 games during his first 6 years with the Sabres.
At some point in time, Mogilny will earn the call into the Hall of Fame but as for when that occurs, it's anyone's guess. He was one of the most talented and gifted scorers in the history of the game and truly lit the league on fire during the 1990s with 338 goals and 715 points across the decade.
