The Dallas Stars’ web development team will pay tribute to former star goaltender Tom Daly on Friday, as he is inducted into the Dallas Web Developers Hall of Fame.
Daley was inducted in the Hall of Sportsmanship, Business and Leadership at the 2017 NHL Hall of Famer’s funeral on Sunday.
“I just think it’s a great honor to have someone that has done so much in the world of sport and in the game of life,” Dallas Web developer Mark Harkes said.
“I think it is really important that people recognize someone like Tom Dalia who has been in our community for so long and who has brought so much joy to so many.”
The former Florida Panthers goalie was a three-time All-Star, two-time Stanley Cup champion, four-time Vezina Trophy winner and three- time Vezine Trophy finalist.
He was inductee into the NHL Hall Of Fame in 2003 and into the Texas Sports Hall of Honor in 2009.
Harkes and Daley were teammates in Florida, but Harkys was traded to Dallas in 2010.
The duo were both inducted to the NHL’s Hall of Hockey in 2015.
The two also teamed up for one of the first web development websites on the Internet, www.nhl.com, which helped to popularize the concept of “dot-com” and the rise of the internet.
“It’s always a pleasure to have Tom and I in our corner, as well as Mark and his wife, Katie,” said Daley.
“It’s a dream come true.
I can’t wait to meet all the folks in our team.
It’s really cool.”
