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.
