72 Years Ago Today...........Mr. Hockey Signs with The Detroit Red Wings
Gordie Howe – October 8 1946 – Gordie Howe (Detroit Red Wings) signed contract with the Detroit Red Wings on October 8, 1946. In the whole NHL career, Gordie Howe scored 801 goals. Howe won 4 Stanley Cups (1950, 1952, 1954 and 1955), all of them with Detroit Red Wings. He is nicknamed Mr. Hockey and he is regarded as one of the best players in the hockey history. He retired when he was 53 year old. In his last season 1979/80, Gordie Howe was 53 years old and still, he was able to score 15 goals and add 26 assists in 80 matches.

The 20 best names available in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft

The Canucks have drafted extremely well over the last couple years. No, I’m not talking about drafting future superstars or quality NHL depth; I’m talking about drafting players with great names. At the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, the Canucks selected one of the best names available in the fourth round when they picked defenceman Jack Rathbone. In 2018, they grabbed another defenceman with one of the best names in the draft when they got Jett Woo in the second round. That’s two elite names in back-to-back drafts. Add in some solid depth names like Petrus Palmu and Artem Manukyan, and the Canucks have clearly made out like bandits at the draft, name-wise.
