The 2024 Howell Motors Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 4 at the Cornerstone Arena in Lockport, NY. Doors will open at 7 p.m. with the ceremony to celebrate the ninth class being inducted beginning at 8 p.m.

Eighteen players, coaches and contributors will be inducted. Food and drink will be served before and after the ceremony.

The keynote speaker will be Marty Biron. Drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the first round of the 1995 NHL Draft, Biron spent the first half of his 16-year NHL career with the Sabres.

Biron, along with Rob Ray, were one of the Sabres against who, in the NHL, made a specific rule. After NHL statisticians discovered a big in their new stat-racking software, the “Biron Rule” restricted jersey numbers to who numbers between 1 and 99.

Biron has always been and remains a fan favorite in Buffalo. He currently works as the game day studio analyst with the Sabres on the MSB Network. He also stars on the popular Buffalo sports show, “Sabres Live,” with Brian Duff on WGR550.

Marty was inducted into the Rochester Americans Hall of Fame in 2018 and currently resides with his family in East Aurora.

Tickets are $35 each presale or $300 for a table of 10. Tickets can be purchased at Howell Motors Ford or Cornerstone Arena.
