Gordie's Gone

If there is a Canadian who owns the name "Gordie" it was Gordie Howe. Gone at 88.

The native of Floral, Sask., played an unparalleled 33 professional seasons, breaking into the pro ranks in 1945 as a teenager with the Omaha Knights of the United Hockey League and skating one final shift for the Detroit Vipers of the International Hockey League in 1997 — at the age of 69.

Adios, Mr. Hockey.
