There will only ever be one Mr. Hockey.

Hockey lost one of its greatest ambassadors, personalities, and talents today.

Today, at the age of 88, Gordie Howe passed away.

If all Gordie did was score 1,850 points in the NHL he would be unforgettable. But he did so much more than that in his 88 years. Tough, witty, funny, and absolutely remarkable on the ice, Gordie will never be forgotten for what he gave to hockey and its fans.

Forever a legend. We will not know another like him. There will only ever be one "Mr. Hockey."

Rest easy, Gordie.

Thoughts, love, prayers, and condolences to the Howe family and the uncountable number of people who were fortunate enough to meet the man who was so much more than just the most complete hockey player ever.
