Forty years after they skated their way into history, two members of Canada's Summit Series hockey team have now scored an Order of Canada.
Ken Dryden has been named an officer of the order and Paul Henderson a member as the Governor General's office released the list of the latest inductees.
Joining them from the hockey world was Daniele Sauvageau, who coached Canada's Olympic women's hockey team to gold at the 2002 Games.
Other notables include two longtime CBC journalists, Michael Enright and Andrew Barrie, as well as investigative reporter Stevie Cameron and broadcaster Elmer Hildebrand for his contributions to radio in western Canada and other charitable causes.
Also on the list are two former Chretien cabinet ministers: Sheila Copps and Brian Tobin, who is also the former premier of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Altogether, the Governor General announced 91 new appointments to the Order of Canada, which was established in 1967 to recognize service to Canada.
