Close your eyes and picture a hockey player. How he skates, how he battles, how he stares down an opponent and celebrates like he’s been there before. Picture how he carries himself with class off the ice and stands up as a worthy hero to the kids that chant his name. Picture a family man, a community man, a team player… and you picture Gordie Howe. He is what every person man or woman who slaps on a pair of skates should aspire to be. Today in Saskatoon the WHL will celebrate Mr. Hockey with 20 players on both sides who could only wish one day to make close to the kind of impact Gordie Howe made on his sport and on his country. But they will work hard, they will battle and they will leave it on the ice as we celebrate the ultimate hockey player today.
