COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Jeremy Roenick headlines a list of five members that make up the United States Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2010.

The class, which also includes Derian Hatcher, Kevin Hatcher, Art Berglund and Dr. V. George Nagobads, will be enshrined on Oct. 21 at HSBC Arena in Buffalo, N.Y.

"These five individuals truly represent the very best of our sport in many different facets, and their contributions have been truly extraordinary," said Ron DeGregorio, president of USA Hockey. "We look forward to their formal induction in Buffalo this October."

Roenick spent 20 seasons in the NHL with Chicago, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Jose and registered 513 goals and 1,216 points in 1,363 career regular season games. He was named an NHL All-Star nine times and is the second-highest American-born goal scorer in league history.

The 40-year-old advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals once, with Chicago in 1992, and also played in two Olympic Winter Games.

Derian Hatcher played 16 seasons as a feared defenceman with the Minnesota/Dallas franchise along with Detroit and Philadelphia. His most notable accomplishment was becoming the first American-born captain to win the Stanley Cup -- with the Stars in 1999. In 1,045 regular season games, Hatcher scored 80 goals and recorded 331 points.

Kevin Hatcher, Derian's older brother, spent 17 seasons in the NHL as a defenceman with Washington, Dallas, Pittsburgh, the Rangers and Carolina. He scored 34 goals during the 1992-93 season to become one of only seven defenceman in league history to surpass 30 goals in a season, and scored 227 times overall in 1,157 career regular season games.

Berglund had an extensive career in international hockey that spanned five decades, serving on the administrative staff of more than 30 U.S. teams in several worldwide tournaments. He served as the general manager of nine U.S. Men's National Teams and eight U.S. National Junior teams and was also involved with six U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Teams.

Dr. Nagobads served 34 years as the team physician for the University of Minnesota men's ice hockey program and also served in the same role for five U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Teams, among many other American international hockey teams. He also spent some time serving as a physician for the Minnesota North Stars from 1984-92.

He was also physician for the 1980 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team that captured the gold medal in Lake Placid.
