didn't even know he wasn't. The game certainly would be impossible without his technological innovation.

True but what has it done to grow the sport? Which is what the builders catagory is all about. No different from the mower and waxer imo.

If I'm not mistaken, there's a little picture / display in the HHOF about the Zamboni ice machine and its inventor. Adding him as a builder is a stretch. Adding Frank Zamboni requires you add Dave Freezingpipeinthefloor, Charles Plexiglass and Fred Helmet. No dice.
