Gordie Howe is Mr. Hockey. He also apparently has traits of Superman.

The legendary NHL star, 86, was reported to have been battling for his life following a series of strokes.

However, it was recently reported that the former Detroit Red Wing Hall of Famer had taken a turn for the better. Even to the point that Howe is expected to appear at a February event in Saskatoon.

The road to recovery became a bit clearer on Friday when Howe’s family issued a statement to the Hockey News, attributing Howe’s miraculous recovery to his participation in a stem cell clinical trial at Novastem, a licensed distributor of stem cell products in Mexico.
