India to add 20 more hockey players to its Hockey Hall of Fame
NEW DELHI — India will add 20 hockey players from its Hockey Halls of Fame.
The Hockey Halls of Fame will induct players from across the country who played for the national team.
A source close to the induction said that the announcement came on the heels of a visit by Hockey Hall president, Jagannath Jain, to India.
India has been a hockey-playing nation for over three decades and the country’s team, the Bharatiya Janata Party, was the first to take to the ice in 1962.
The country currently has more than 50 hockey players, including 10 former NHL players, who were inducted into the Hockey Hall.
More than 30 of them are from Tamil Nadu, including former Lok Sabha MP and former Hockey Hall member V.K. Krishna.
