Former Detroit Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2020.

Holland, who is now the GM of the Edmonton Oilers, will be inducted as a builder.

Holland was the GM of the Red Wings for 22 years before leaving in 2019, and had been with the organization for 36 years.

During his time with Detroit, the Red Wings won four Presidents' Trophies, 10 division championships, five regular-season conference titles and four Stanley Cup Championships.

The team also made the playoffs in the first 19 seasons of Holland's career, and the team had more than 1,000 wins.

He was Detroit's 11th general manager in club history, and still was able to assemble a team that won the Stanley Cup in 2008 after the salary cap was introduced.

Other inductees into the Hockey Hall of Fame include Marian Hossa, Jarome Iginla, Doug Wilson, Kim St-Pierre and Kevin Lowe.
