Jody Shelley is never shy to talk about his pride in being from Nova Scotia.

And after a 14-year NHL career that included stops in Columbus, New York, Philadelphia and San Jose, Shelley hung up his skates to tackle broadcasting – a role that was initially suggested to him by former Blue Jackets president of hockey operations John Davidson. Shelley recently returned to Halifax, where he was a fan favorite with the Mooseheads, to drop the puck during the Memorial Cup final.

Now, he's received another (bigger) honor from his home province. Shelley is an inductee into the Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame's class of 2019.

The Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame will have all of its 2019 inductees together for an event in November. According to the HOF's website, its mission is "to honour, promote and preserve the sport history of Nova Scotia, and our vision is to be the best provincial Sport Hall of Fame in Canada."
