Foxy Friday: Modano Retires

23 Sep

The Dallas Stars signed Mike Modano to a one day contract so he could retire as a member of the team he played with for 20 seasons.  CLASS ACT.

Modano will officially announce at 2 PM ET today and you can watch it live on NHL.com.  NHL Network will premiere “Mike Modano: American Icon,” a look back at his career, this Saturday at 6 PM ET.  We hope there’s a clip of his cameo in The Mighty Ducks.

 

From CSNChicago.com:  [Modano’s] 561 goals and 813 assists are records for a U.S.-born player and put him among the NHL’s best.  Patrick Kane needs 459 more goals and 614 more assists to pass Mike Modano as the leader in each category for American-born players. [link]
