Pat Falloon and Bobby Brett inducted into Hall of Fame

Press Release

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Popular Spokane Chiefs figures Pat Falloon and Bobby Brett are to be inducted into the Inland Northwest Sports Hall of Fame on October 22. They are two of five 2013 inductees.

Falloon, a forward from Foxwarren, Manitoba, played three seasons with the Chiefs, littering his name across the club’s record book. He remains the Chiefs’ all-time leader in goals scored with 146, third all-time in assists with 194, and second all-time in points with 340. His 1.67 points per game remains the 3rd-best career mark in Chiefs history.

In 21 playoff games played, Falloon scored 37 points, with 15 goals and 22 assists. As part of the 1991 Memorial Cup Champion Chiefs team, Falloon was named tournament MVP, leading Spokane to a perfect 3-0 record while outscoring opponents 22-8.

Brett is the long-time owner of the Chiefs, turning the club into a model franchise and Spokane sports staple. He purchased the club in 1990 and it has since won two Memorial Cups, hosted another Memorial Cup tournament and participated in Junior Hockey’s first outdoor game. Brett is also the long-time owner of the Spokane Indians, a class-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers baseball team.
