Heading into Monday, the hopes were that former Detroit Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood would find out he was headed for the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Unfortunately, Osgood came up short in his fourth year of eligibility.
No Hockey Hall of Fame call again this year for Chris Osgood.
400 victories, 2 Cups as starter. #RedWings
