Gordie Howe Dies, Red Wings Confirm

Man, hockey just lost another legend. Not too along ago it was Jean Beliveau now it’s Mr. Hockey. RIP to an all-time great, and even better human being.

He lives on thanks to the Gordie Howe hat trick - a goal, an assist and a fight in a game.

RIP to a legend. I heard that he actually only had two of those in his career - is that right, Biz?

I would guess, at least official fights. Back when he started, if a stick wasn't swung, it didn't count as a fight.

Either way, I like that it's named after him - a great way for him to constantly stay at the tip of the tongue when the game of hockey is played.

Not sure many knew this, but Howe suffered a fractured skull in 1950 during a game and needed emergency surgery to save his life.

Wow. I still say that hockey players are the toughest athletes out there, and that's part of the proof. He was probably back on the ice the same night ;)

Haha, I'll always remember when Bart Simpson used Howe's picture to give a face for the fake romantic interest he created for his teacher. "Woodrow." They showed this during the credits.

It was just a flesh wound.;)
