Gordie Howe, more commonly referred to as “Mr. Hockey” passed away at the age of 88. He played for the Detroit Red Wings for twenty-five seasons during a time when the National Hockey League had six teams, however, his fame extended well beyond Detroit. He is the Red Wings career leader in goals, points, games and most notably, goodwill. He led the Wings to four Stanley Cup titles and his number “9” is probably the most famous number in the city of Detroit. He will always be remembered as one of the great icons in Detroit. Rest in peace, Mr. Hockey.
