The Baseball Hall of Fame announced its 2020 ballot on Monday, and one name should be surrounded by neon lights: Derek Jeter, the former Yankees captain, who might follow Mariano Rivera as the second unanimous inductee when results are revealed in January.

With the 2019 Hockey Hall of Fame induction weekend in the rearview mirror, it's time to look ahead to the NHL players on the 2020 ballot.

Players were placed in alphabetical order in their respective tiers.

The Lock

Jarome Iginla

There's no denying Iginla's place in hockey's most sacred building. He was a three-time first-team All-Star, a two-time Maurice "Rocket" Richard winner, an Art Ross winner, and a three-time Hart Trophy finalist. Iggy never won the Stanley Cup, but he did earn a world junior gold medal, a World Championship gold, a World Cup, and two Olympic golds. A dominant two-way power forward, he's 16th all time on the NHL's goals list despite playing during the league's toughest scoring era.

With last night’s Hall of Fame voting announcement behind us , let’s look ahead to 2020 ’s ballot , shall we? Unlike Martinez from last year, none of the holdovers on the 2020 ballot are a lock for induction. The next three highest vote-getters after the inductees were Curt Schilling (60.9%), Roger Clemens

Strong case

Daniel Alfredsson

Alfredsson has been passed over a few times now, but his time should eventually come. He was among the league's most consistent players for nearly two decades, winning the Calder Trophy in 1995-96, being named a second-team All-Star in 2005-06, and earning an Olympic gold medal in 2006.

Sergei Gonchar

Gonchar checks off the longevity box, but his peak was also sensational, as he racked up 585 points in 753 games from his age 24-35 seasons. He was a second-team All-Star twice over that span and played a crucial role in Pittsburgh's Stanley Cup win in 2009. He was never named a Norris Trophy finalist but has the third-most points of any D-man not in the Hall of Fame.

Hossa may not be inducted in his first year of eligibility, but he seems destined to be at some point. A premier two-way winger, Hossa won three Stanley Cups with the Chicago Blackhawks and reached two other finals with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings.

Don Cherry's dismissal from Sportsnet a hot topic among Hockey Hall of Famers

  Don Cherry's dismissal from Sportsnet a hot topic among Hockey Hall of Famers TORONTO — Hayley Wickenheiser says she appreciates what Don Cherry has done for the game of hockey. She says she also often disagreed with what the colourful hockey commentator had to say. The controversy surrounding Cherry's dismissal from Sportsnet was a hot topic among the members of the Hockey Hall of Fame's Class of 2019 at a media event Friday in advance of their Monday enshrinement. Cherry was fired Monday after nearly four decades co-hosting the popular "Coach's Corner" segment after making on-air comments which many felt were critical of immigrants for not wearing Remembrance Day poppies."It's been tough.

The National Baseball Hall of Fame has received a haul of fame in recent years. With Monday’s release of a 2020 ballot headlined by first-time-eligible Derek Jeter, another class will soon be confirmed, congratulated and cheerfully consigned to Cooperstown.

The 2020 ballot is going to be very interesting when the BBWAA gets to submit their votes at the end of the year. There is only one slam dunk first timer, and many of the remaining It’s far too soon to definitively say how voting will go, but here’s a breakdown of the 2020 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot .

Alexander Mogilny

Mogilny was one of the most electrifying players of his time. He finished tied for the league lead in goals with 76 in 1992-93, was twice named a postseason All-Star, and is a member of the prestigious Triple Gold Club. Aside from his on-ice exploits, Mogilny became the first NHLer to defect from Russia, paving the way for other Russian legends.

On the bubble

Rod Brind'Amour

With Guy Carbonneau now in the Hall of Fame, there's a case to be made for Brind'Amour. He only won two Selke Trophies compared to Carbonneau's three but was a much more productive player in a more difficult scoring era. He also captained the Carolina Hurricanes to the 2006 Stanley Cup.

Patrik Elias

Elias' name doesn't scream "Hall of Fame," but he was quietly a very productive player despite featuring in New Jersey's trap system for much of his career. He was a reliable defensive player, too, and won a pair of Stanley Cups. His peak likely wasn't high enough, but there's certainly a conversation to be had.

Stu Cowan: Former Canadien Guy Carbonneau earned spot in Hall of Fame

  Stu Cowan: Former Canadien Guy Carbonneau earned spot in Hall of Fame At 56, I was one of the oldest guys in the locker room last Thursday night in Greenfield Park for a game of beer-league hockey at the Cynthia Coull Arena. Much of the pregame conversation — not surprisingly — was about the Canadiens and one of the questions was when will they ever win another Stanley Cup? I mentioned how when I was attending Centennial Regional High School in Greenfield Park that it became an annual tradition to skip school to attend a Stanley Cup parade. The Canadiens won the Cup in each of my first four years in high school, before the New York Islanders dethroned them in my graduating year of 1980.

With the 2019 Baseball Hall of Fame class announced Tuesday, we can look ahead at the ballot for 2020 – headlined by longtime New York Yankees It will be the eighth year on the ballot for Clemens, Bonds and Schilling, while Larry Walker will have his 10th and final opportunity to win 75 percent of

What will the Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2020 look like? Here's our current ranking of eligible candidates A stone-cold lock for the first ballot . He has the numbers, with 625 goals (16th all time) and 1,300 points (34th). He has the accolades, with two goal-scoring titles and the 2002 Ted Lindsay

Theo Fleury

Fleury built an intriguing case as one of the game's most ferocious competitors while standing at just 5-foot-6. His resume is impressive: 1,000 points, two 100-point seasons, a 50-goal campaign, a Stanley Cup, an Olympic gold medal, and a point-per-game playoff average. His lack of individual hardware will likely keep him out, whether fair or not.

Curtis Joseph

Joseph never won a Stanley Cup or a Vezina Trophy, though he was a finalist for the latter on three occasions. Cujo had an ability to stand on his head and steal games for teams that had no business winning, like the '93 Blues, '97 Oilers, and '99 Maple Leafs. He's sixth on the all-time wins list - the most victories of any eligible goalie not in the Hall of Fame.

Pierre Turgeon

No Hall of Fame-eligible player has more points than Turgeon. You'd think the numbers would speak for themselves, but while playing in the highest-scoring era with some all-time greats, he was never named a finalist for any major award (sorry, Lady Byng) and couldn't win a Stanley Cup.

Derek Jeter among 18 newcomers on Hall of Fame ballot

  Derek Jeter among 18 newcomers on Hall of Fame ballot NEW YORK — Derek Jeter is among 18 newcomers on the 2020 Hall of Fame ballot. He is likely to be an overwhelming choice to join former New York Yankees teammate Mariano Rivera in Cooperstown after the reliever last year became the first unanimous pick by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. A 14-time All-Star shortstop and five-time World Series champion, Jeter hit .310 with 3,465 hits in 20 seasons and was the 1996 AL Rookie of the Year. He has been CEO of the Miami Marlins the past two seasons.Other newcomers announced Monday by the BBWAA include Cliff Lee, Josh Beckett, Jason Giambi, Paul Konerko, Rafael Furcal, Bobby Abreu and Alfonso Soriano.

Since Iginla didn’t play any hockey at any level last season, we now know that he will headline the 2020 Hockey Hall Both are Olympic heroes, Canadian hockey icons and Hall of Fame people. But it was discovered later that a Montreal writer had Iginla fifth on his MVP ballot , which turned out to

FANTASY HOCKEY . Here are those 18 candidates new to the ballot , in alphabetical order The Baseball Writers Association of America will announce the results of its 2020 Hall of Fame balloting on Jan. Yamaguchi is one of at least four Japanese players looking to come to MLB this offseason.

Doug Wilson

Wilson has been on the ballot for a long time, but Sergei Zubov's induction could help his case moving forward as an offensive defenseman. He has the second-most points of any rearguard not enshrined and won the Norris Trophy in 1982. If Wilson fails to get in as a player, he could eventually get in as a builder for his work as San Jose Sharks general manager.

Not looking good

Dan Boyle

Boyle had a nice career, winning a Stanley Cup and being named a second-team All-Star twice. Still, his overall resume pales in comparison to other blue-liners in consideration.

If you like longevity and loyalty then Doan is your guy, but his peak was nowhere near Hall-of-Fame caliber. He's listed due to this being his first year of eligibility.

Vincent Lecavalier

Lecavalier was on track for the Hall of Fame, but injuries took their toll in the back half of his career. His production suffered, as he tallied just 210 points in his age-30 season and beyond. Still, he has a Stanley Cup, a Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy, and an MVP award for the 2004 World Cup of Hockey.

Jere Lehtinen

Lehtinen's prospects are certainly aided by Carbonneau's induction, as they both won three Selke Trophies. Lehtinen also won a Stanley Cup, but his overall numbers probably won't be enough to get him in.

Canadian women's star Hayley Wickenheiser inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame

  Canadian women's star Hayley Wickenheiser inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame TORONTO — Hayley Wickenheiser hasn't had a lot of time to reflect. The Canadian women's hockey star — a quadruple Olympic gold medallist and seven-time world champion — retired in January 2017 and quickly transitioned to medical school. As if there wasn't enough on her plate already, she then took on the role as assistant director of player development for the Toronto Maple Leafs in August 2018. The Canadian women's hockey star — a quadruple Olympic gold medallist and seven-time world champion — retired in January 2017 and quickly transitioned to medical school.

Brad Richards

Richards is the third member of the 2004 Tampa Bay Lightning on this list, and he might have as good a chance as any of them. He won the Conn Smythe that year and another Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2015. He didn't quite excel at the most important facet of the game (goal-scoring), which will likely cause him to miss out.

Jeremy Roenick

Roenick's counting stats are Hall-of-Fame worthy, but he lacks both individual and team awards. This has been his Achilles heel during his entire time on the ballot, so unless there are some philosophical changes in the boardroom, it's unlikely J.R. gets in.

Keith Tkachuk

Tkachuk scored more goals than any eligible player not already inducted. Similar to Roenick, his lack of hardware is likely what's keeping him out despite boasting the numbers. It's possible that Tkachuk's sons can help grow his legacy, but it seems unlikely he gets in next year.
