Sabres' Rick Jeanneret will be inducted into Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame

The Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame will introduce 14 new members Wednesday, and longtime Sabres play-by-play announcer Rick Jeanneret will headline the list.

Jeanneret, the longest-tenured announcer in the NHL, has been working Sabres games since the 1971-72 season. He will speak on behalf of the hall's 22nd induction class at 3 p.m. Wednesday in the First Niagara Center atrium.

Therese Forton-Barnes, the board president, will announce the 14-member class of former athletes, administrators and coaches.

The Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame began in 1991 and will bring its total membership to 254. Four of this year's 14 will be inducted posthumously as part of the Pride of Western New York.
