Dallas Stars Legend Mike Modano Pays Tribute To Late Gordie Howe
On Friday, the sports world lost an iconic legend with the passing of NHL Hall of Famer Gordie Howe at the age of 88.
Social media lit up with tributes to the greatest #9 to ever lace up his skates.
One of those tributes came in the form of a tweet by the all-time goal-scoring and points leader amongst American-born players in the NHL...and our local hockey legend...Dallas Stars great Mike Modano.
And if you ever wondered why Modano himself wore #9...now you know.
