Remembering The Great Gordie Howe

June 12, 2016

Gordie Howe, one of the greatest, if not the greatest of hockey players died two days ago at the age of 88.

This will be a short tribute to “Mr. Hockey” who set records for holding records and was part of 4 Stanley Cup winners with the Detroit Red Wings, all in a 6 year span from (1950-1955).

He played in a 6 team league remembered by a hockey fan named Jesse, as a great one.

In a work capacity Jesse has treasured memories of Mr. Howe as a truly nice and dignified man.

Gordie could get rough on the ice, it is after all, a rough game but I also of memories of Mr. Howe as a soft spoken, modest interview subject in 1992.

If there is one good thing about the NHL getting a game 6 tonight in San Jose, it is the fact there will be some tribute to Gordie Howe on the stage that is the NHL finals.

If any hockey player deserves it, it is arguably the greatest of them all, Gordie Howe.
