It was announced today that Mike Modano will be the Stars lone representative in this year’s NHL All-Star Game that will take place on Jan. 25 in Montreal. For Modano, who is 38 and in his 17th season with the Stars, it’s the ninth time he’s been voted to the all-star game.
While not all Homers contributors will agree (Josh), I think Modano is one of the most quintessential figures in the history of Dallas sports. I love the guy. He’s proclaimed his love for this team, this city and and even though he’s damned near 40, he plays hard every year. He’s brought glory to the city of Dallas both via championship and by breaking every scoring record for an American-born player. He keeps his nose clean, is beloved by his teammates and never complains. You hear that, Cowboys? This guy’s in your own backyard so start taking notes, you fuckers!
