Dallas Stars legend Mike Modano is thrilled to see his former team back in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since 2008.

And the Anaheim Ducks couldn’t be a more perfect first round opponent to get Modano pumped up for Game 1 on Wednesday.

Early in his career when the franchise was still in Minnesota, Modano made a cameo appearance in the 1992 movie "The Mighty Ducks."

He only had a couple of lines in the film when he spoke to coach Gordon Bombay, played by Emilio Estevez.

In the scene, Modano recalls a time when he played pee-wee hockey with Bombay and says the coach of the Mighty Ducks "used to rule in Pee Wees."

But 22 years later, Modano revealed on Twitter what was really said.
