Gordie Howe Dies At 88
"Mr. Hockey" Gordie Howe died early Friday morning at his son's home in Ohio, according to family members.
Howe played for the Detroit Red Wings from 1946-1971 before he retired. He came out of retirement so he could play with his sons in the World Hockey Association later on in the 70's.
He was a four-time Stanley Cup champion, all with the Red Wings, during the decade of the 1950's.
He had been in declining health in recent years. He suffered a stroke, and underwent controversial stem cell treatment so he could survive. Howe was 88 years old.
