DALLAS — The puck stops here. Mike Modano – arguably the brightest star to don the Stars uniform, scored on the ultimate power play. On Monday, Modano was named to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

“To be recognized by the committee, what your impact has meant to the game, on and off the ice,” Modano said of the honor. “I really couldn’t ask for a more storybook type career.”

That’s right – Modano has officially skated into history. His 21-year career includes a hat trick of accolades to include: a Stanley Cup win in 1999; a silver medal at the 2001 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics; and in 2012, an induction into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.

“I think as far as hockey goes, there’s nothing else more to do,” Modano said. “That pretty much ends it right there, but it’s certainly the best of them all.”

Perhaps the “icing” on this cake? He’s about to be the father of twins!

“A little nervous leading up to be a dad soon, but I’m excited about it.”

You can add that pair of accomplishments to this legend’s roster.
