Nedomansky was selected as a new member of the Hall of Fame with former Canadian forward Guy Carbonneau, Russian defender Sergei Zubov and Hayley Wickenheiser of Canada. Among the builders, Jim Rutherford and Jerry York were selected.

They were selected by a committee of eighteen members, and a 44-year-old former New Jersey player, Patrik Elias, was also nominated for a wider nomination.

Nedomanský also won four silver medals in world championships (1965, 1966, 1971 and 1974) and three bronze medals (1969, 1970, 1973).
