DETROIT (AP) — Doug Weight recalls his father putting him on skates at the age of 2 because he could barely walk due to a childhood condition that relegated him to wearing braces on his legs.

Four decades later, Weight was inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.

The two-time Stanley Cup champion, three-time Olympian and four-time NHL All-Star was inducted Monday night at the Motor City Casino. Weight says it was icing on the cake to share the honor with former teammate Bill Guerin, a Stanley Cup champion, three-time Olympian and four-time All-Star.

Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos, former college coach Ron Mason and Cindy Curley, one of the pioneers in women's hockey, also were inducted.
