Mr. Hockey

Gordie Howe is known throughout the sports world simply as “Mr. Hockey.”  His incredible career dates back to 1946, when at the age of 18, he debuted at right wing for the still young Detroit Red Wings franchise.

This video clip captures Howe’s early days with footage dating back to the 1950s.  You’ll catch a glimpse or two of old Olympia Stadium and be reminded why Mr. Howe’s elbows helped make him famous.
