Former Bruins coach Pat Burns was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame Monday. Burns, who died of cancer in 2010, will be inducted in November along with Dominik Hasek, Peter Forsberg, Mike Modano, Rob Blake and referee Bill McCreary.
“On behalf of the Boston Bruins  I would like to congratulate the family of Pat Burns on his election into the Hockey Hall of Fame,” Bruins President Cam Neely  said in a statement. “Pat had an outstanding career in hockey, and we are very happy to see him rewarded with this great honor.”
Burns was a three-time Jack Adams  Award winner as coach of the year, earning the distinction in 1998 while coaching the Bruins. He coached 14 seasons between Montreal, Toronto, Boston and New Jersey and won the Stanley Cup  with the Devils in 2003.
