Stealth’s Hall up for Hall of Fame

Former Vancouver Stealth coach one of five nominees up for induction into National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame

Chris Hall is one of five nominees on the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame Class of 2014 ballot.

The nominees were announced on June 27.

Hall, who stepped down as head coach of the Vancouver Stealth at the beginning of June because of health concerns, has coached for a dozen years in the league.

He is staying on as a senior adviser to the team.

The Victoria native spent six seasons with the Calgary Roughnecks from 2002 to 2007 and then took the helm of the Stealth in 2009. His 85 regular season wins ranks third all-time in league history and his 11 playoff wins are fourth.

He is also just one of two coaches in league history to win the Champion’s Cup with two different teams, capturing the league championship with Calgary in 2004 and the Stealth in 2010. Hall was also co-recipient of the NLL coach of the year award in 2010.

Also nominated for the hall of fame are Jake Bergey, who played 10 seasons for the Philadelphia Wings; Pat Coyle, who played a dozen years in the league for the Toronto Rock and Colorado Mammoth; Pat McCready, who played 17 seasons, primarily with the Buffalo Bandits and Rochester Knighthawks; and Kaleb Toth, who played 13 seasons with Toronto and Calgary.

To be inducted into the Hall, the nominees must be selected on a minimum of 75 per cent of the ballots cast. Voters may select up to three nominees on their ballot.

Candidates who do not achieve the 75 per cent minimum, remain on the ballot for a second year.
