Gordie Howe: Mr. Hockey

Gordie Howe: Mr. Hockey

The Story


From the frozen ponds of rural Saskatchewan to hockey's big league in the Motor City, Gordie Howe was perhaps the game's most dominant player of his era. From 1946 to 1971 he was the star right winger for the Detroit Red Wings, setting league records and winning the Stanley Cup four times. CBC Archives presents a selection of clips about the man fans know as "Mr. Hockey."
