EVELETH, Minn. - Brett Hull and longtime New York Rangers Brian Leetch and Mike Richter are members of the 2008 class of the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.

The four-member group announced Tuesday also includes Cammi Granato, the all-time scoring leader for the U.S. women's hockey team with 343 points in 205 games.

Hull, one of the leading goal scorers in NHL history with 741, recorded 1,391 points in a 20-year career that included Stanley Cup titles in Dallas and Detroit.

Leetch was an 11-time all-star in 18 NHL seasons, all but one with the Rangers. He won two Norris Trophies as the league's best defenceman and was a Stanley Cup playoff MVP.

Richter was a three-time all-star in a 14-year career as goalie with the Rangers.
