For the 45th year running, Saskatchewan is adding to its membership in the Sports Hall of Fame.

Ten inductees were named at a ceremony Thursday, including the championship-winning 1996 Saskatoon Hilltops football club.

Six athletes will be among those inducted into the hall, including former NHLer Dunc Fisher from Regina.

He says one of his most memorable moments is hitting the goal post in double overtime during game seven of the Stanley Cup final.

"That always sticks in my craw because if I had scored, we would have won the Stanley Cup," Fisher told reporters. "That was a highlight and a low light." (Photo: Ron "Scoreboard" Johnston's Collection)
