Toronto, NY (WBEN/AP) - Former Sabre Dave Andreychuk was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last night.  Delaware North CEO, and Boston Bruins owner, Jeremy Jacobs was inducted as well in the builder category.

Andreychuk began his career with the Sabres in 1982 and played for 11 seasons here.  He bounced around from Toronto, Boston, New Jersey and Colorado, finally landing with the Tampa Bay Lightning 2001.

He signed with Tampa Bay when he was 37-years-old, spend four years with the Lightning, the final three as captain, and won his only Stanley Cup.

Andreychuk retired in 2006 after a 23-year NHL career, and his 640 goals make him the 14th-highest scoring player. Of the 17 retired players to hit the 600-goal mark, he was the only one not in the Hall other than co-inductee Teemu Selanne despite being eligible for induction since 2009. Selanne became eligible this year

Andreychuk joined the Hall with NHL greats, Mark Recchi, Selanne and Paul Kariya and Canadian women's star Danielle Goyette.
