Mr. Hockey retires on this date in 1980

One of the greatest hockey players who ever lived-retired on this date in 1980- Gordie Howe. Mr. Hockey retired at age 52. When he retired he was the all-time leadern goals, assists, points and games played. He scored 801 goals in his career. He also got to play with his sons Mark and Marty. He’s still living although not in the best of health at age 84. Howe was not only a gifted player but tough as they come.
