Affectionately known as “Mr. Hockey,” Gordie Howe, the late iron man of the NHL, is considered by many to be the greatest player in the history of his sport. Playing for a remarkable 32 years, Howe was an indomitable force with a relentless competitive fire. His stats (World Hockey Association included), counting the playoffs: In 2,421 games, 1,071 goals, 1,518 assists, 2,589 points and 2,418 penalty minutes. He held NHL records of 801 goals (regular season only) and 1,850 points until Wayne Gretzky came long. And besides the endurance, there was the ability and determination that enabled Howe to win six MVPs and six scoring championships with the Detroit Red Wings. He finally retired as a player in 1980 at age 52. Sadly, earlier this summer he passed away at the age of 88. Through August 20, 2016, one of his game worn Red Wings jerseys is on the auction block at www.scpauctions.com as part of its 2016 Mid-Summer Classic. Read More
