Not sure, but the NFL may also... The thing with the HHoF is that it is really not a Hall for the NHL and encompasses all leagues in the World I believe. Russians from the old USSR days who never played in the NHL are inducted and honored there.
In MLB I believe they have even gone away from allowing the inducted player to select the cap he will be depicted in on the wall and select it for him... IIRC Gary Carter was selected as an Expo rather than as a Met, but I could be mixing him up with another player who they selected the Expos for.
