Gordie Howe

All you need to know about how important Gordie Howe is to his sport is that he earned the nickname ‘Mr. Hockey’. Howe is still the face of one of the original six franchises, the Detroit Red Wings, where he played 25 of his 26 NHL seasons. Howe won the Stanley Cup four times, the Hart Trophy (MVP) six times, Art Ross Trophy winner six times, and holds the NHL record for most games (1,767) and seasons played. In fact, before Wayne Gretzky broke every scoring record, Howe was the name on them all. He is third all-time in points (1,850) and second in goals (801). He has the most combined NHL and WHA regular season game (2,186) and playoff games (2,421) and seasons (32). Howe set a record with 22 straight seasons with at least 20 goals scored. He was the first player to score over 1,000 goals between the WHA and NHL (regular season and playoffs combined) with 1,071 in his professional career. Howe was the embodiment of what hockey was; a tough as nailed athlete who displayed tremendous skill and desire to be great. Even at 52-years-old he had that kind of identity. Howe created what is known as the ‘Gordie Howe Hat Trick’; which is when a player scores a goal, records an assist, and gets in a fight all in one game.
