Modano, All-Time American Leading Scorer, Retires

Mike Modano removed any suspense (ok, there was very little) from his playing future by announcing his retirement on Wednesday.

He made the announcement in a most unusual way. He tweeted on his new account that he started up last week that he had an announcement on his future, sending followers to a link to his Facebook page making the declaration his career is over. Such are the times in which we live.

Here’s what his statement had to say.

“After a long summer of thinking about my future, I’ve come to the decision that it’s time to retire as a player from the NHL. There’s way too many people to thank here at this time and too much to say, so I have a press conference scheduled for early Friday afternoon. Check back Friday late afternoon for more. What a great ride it’s been!”

    at least Mike Modano won’t have to wear the blemished Red Wing jersey that has the AMWAY logo attached to it.

    I think I read something about that in the paper. God I hope not. The NASCAR-ification of the NHL. That would be lo-brow
