Red Wings goaltender Jose Bortuzzo and Red Sox outfielder Jose Abreu are headed to the Hall of Fame together.
Bortuzza, who was named to the NHL’s All-Rookie team in 2015 and 2016, and Abreus, who went 25-for-34 with a .929 save percentage, are teammates in the Hall.
They were honored Tuesday at the annual induction ceremony of the Detroit Red Wings, which was hosted by former Detroit coach Mike Babcock.
Babcock, now an analyst for ESPN, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Famer’s Hall of Honor in 2001.
Bartolozzi, a native of San Jose, Calif., was the first black goalie selected by the Red Wings and was the third player in the franchise’s history to earn a starting job when he made his NHL debut in 2005.
He went 9-0-2 with a 1.88 goals-against average, a .920 save percentage and seven shutouts in 82 games, which also included a shutout of Boston Bruins defenseman Dan Cleary.
Barts, a Chicago native, became the franchise leader in wins in 1998 and became the first Red Wings player to earn five consecutive NHL shutouts.
Bastro, who played seven seasons in the NHL, was a five-time All-Star, and the fourth goalie to win the Conn Smythe Trophy, the highest honor in professional sports.
Bertuzzi and Abbreu were teammates on the Red Wing’s 1995 championship team.
They are the only two players in franchise history to win both the Hart Trophy and Vezina Trophy.
Bennett, who spent his first 11 seasons in Detroit, is a four-time NHL All-star, including four playoff appearances.
He won two Norris Trophies and won two Stanley Cups.
Barsky, who made his Stanley Cup Playoff debut with the Red Bulls in 2004, has played in two Stanley Cup Finals and is the first player in team history to lead the Red Bums to three championships.
He won the Conn Cup in 2014 with the Detroit Lions.
