On Tuesday it was announced that Winnipeg Jets Executive Chairman Mark Chipman will join the Hockey Hall of Fame’s selection committee for 2019. 

Mark Chipman Appointed to HOF Selection Committee

Chipman, 58, is a lifelong Winnipegger who attended St. Paul’s High School, graduated with a law degree from the University of North Dakota, purchased the Manitoba Moose, created True North Sports and Entertainment, built what is now Bell MTS Place, and brought the Winnipeg Jets back to Manitoba in 2011. 

The highly-adored community man is a member of the Order of Manitoba, he serves on the board of the Hockey Canada Foundation, and currently sits on the NHL’s Board of Governors Executive Committee. Chipman will be replacing Erik Duhatschek on the HHOF Selection Committee, as Duhatschek’s 15 years of service had come to an end. 

Chipman was not the only new face introduced to the 18-member selection committee, as Sportsnet/Hockey Night in Canada’s Cassie Campbell-Pascall was also voted in as a new member, replacing the late Bill Torrey. Current HHOF Selection Committee members Michael Farber, Ron Francis, Bob McKenzie and Jari Kurri each also had their terms extended to December 2021, Tuesday.
