Mike Modano walked away from the NHL on Friday with tears, signing an honorary one-day contract so he could retire after 21 seasons as a member of the Dallas Stars.
The Stars say Modano will sign a one-day contract Friday during the news conference when he announces his retirement.
“After a long summer of thinking about my future, I’ve come to the decision that it’s time to retire as a player from the NHL,” Modano wrote on Wednesday.
Hell hath officially frozen over. In Arlington, the Texas Rangers are still playing baseball. And in Dallas, Stars fans are now cheering for the Detroit Red Wings.
To the Texas Rangers, tonight’s do-or-die game is unprecedented, uncharted territory. But as metroplex sports fans, we’re accustomed to these elimination scenarios. And, you know what? We’re pretty damn good at them.
THE DALLAS STARS have announced that they will NOT offer Mike Modano a new contract for the upcoming season.
